A DOG working with Solihull police traced two men being sought for an attempted burglary.

West Midlands Police say officers arrested the pair after police found them at a house in Solihull following an attempted burglary hours earlier.

Their police dog, called Captain, found the 19-year-old duo at an address on Evenlode Road.

A spokesperson for Solihull Police said: “We were called to Goodway Road, Solihull following reports of a burglary in progress in the early hours of February 1.




“After being disturbed by the occupants, it was reported the men fled in a silver 1 Series BMW.

“Traffic officers were quick to put out local observations and the car, which was on cloned plates, was located parked up on Evenlode Road.


“PD Captain and his handler, along with traffic officers gained entry to the property where two men, both aged 19, were arrested on suspicion of theft. They remain in police custody this afternoon.

“The BMW, which was stolen only the previous week, has been recovered for forensic examination.”
