A TALENTED Police Dog (PD) helped police track down a trio of people in Wrexham over the weekend.

Police Dog Guinness is a familiar name within the Cheshire and North Wales Dogs Unit for his work in helping officers fight crime throughout the region.

Recently, police shared CCTV footage of him chasing down a wanted man in the Conwy area.

The man quickly realised he could not outrun the rapid and determined Dutch Shepherd and was soon apprehended.

Over the weekend, Guinness and his handlers' attentions were turned to Wrexham as he helped locate three people.

A spokesperson for Cheshire and North Wales Police's Dogs Unit said: "It was a hat-trick for PD Guinness last night who put his nose to good use following an attempted theft on the Wrexham Industrial Estate.

"He tracked and detained one male suspect hiding in the bushes, then continued to track and locate a second male suspect hiding in the undergrowth.

"Next, concerns were raised for a male wanting to end his life. PD Guinness tracked and located the male lying face down in long grass and now receiving the relevant support."
