Local police officers have seized three dogs, with one of them already being confirmed as stolen.

Sgt Lonsdale and PC Corden seized the pets while one male was arrested on suspicion of the theft of the dogs and the theft of motor vehicles.

The delighted owner of the dog that has been confirmed as stolen was contacted by the police team and will soon be reunited with the family pet.

Sgt Lonsdale said: “We appreciate how distressing it is for families who have had their pets stolen and understand the distress this causes.

“We do treat this seriously and wanted to share this good news.”
