Police Dog Rocky Detains Two People Following Vehicle Pursuit

On Saturday 6th April a Range Rover failed to stop for police in the Stockton area.

A pursuit soon commenced which was soon aborted as it was deemed too dangerous for officers to continue.

Shortly after, the Range Rover collided on a roundabout in the A689 Billingham area and the driver and passenger made off from the vehicle into a nearby field.

Police Dog Rocky was put to the test and impressively managed to locate both people quickly, leading to officers arresting them both.

A man, 36 and a woman, 29 were arrested on suspicion of driving offences and have been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101 quoting event number 057396.
