PD Colt tracked down the suspect and some suspected Class A drugs were found.
A male suspect was eventually located hiding in bushes.
Posting an update on the North Wales & Cheshire Police Alliance, a spokesperson said:
“During the early hours a vehicle failed to stop for police before crashing in the Mold area.”
“The suspects fled from the vehicle on foot. PD Colt was soon deployed after them where some suspected Class A drugs were found before a male was located hiding in bushes.”
PD Colt is one of North Wales & Cheshire Police Alliance general-purpose dogs, multi-disciplined canines who are trained to work under a variety of conditions.
Dog breeds used tend to be German Shepherds, Dutch Herders or Malinois.
General purpose police dogs have a depth of skills that includes; searching for missing persons, tracking suspects from crime scenes and recovery of recently discarded articles that could be used as evidence.
They also protect their handler and other officers in dangerous situations and even the mere presence of these police dogs can also be enough to discourage bad behaviour.
Most handlers in the North Wales & Cheshire Police Dog Alliance have a general purpose dog and a specialist dog such as a Labrador, Cocker or Springer Spaniel.
