Joker the police dog beats a burglar at hide and seek

A police dog catches a burglary suspect after a game of hide and seek in Ballymena.

Police had received a number of reports relating to burglary in the Ballymena area in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The suspect, who was still in the area, was giving police the run around popping up here and there.

Local officers then decided to enlist the help of one of their up and coming stars, police dog Joker.

Unbeknown to the burglar that Joker was on the scene, the suspect popped up yet again with Joker quickly on his track.

Shortly after picking up the scent, Joker found the suspect hiding in someone's back garden.

The accused was then arrested thanks to PSNI's new local dog hero.
