A POLICE dog helped track down a suspect wanted to multiple offences in Warrington.

PD Lex was busy assisting Cheshire Police in hunting down a man who was wanted for 'various offences' and in possession of a weapon yesterday evening, Thursday.

The clever hound helped Warrington's policing unit locate the suspect who was arrested and detained.

A post on the Cheshire North West Policing Dogs page on X said: "He surrendered when confronted with Lex who later went and found the hidden weapon nearby."
