Dog Nabs Present Burglar

A burglar who was tracked down by a police dog after stealing Christmas presents from a house in Corby, Northamptonshire, has been jailed for eighteen months.

The dog, who is named Luke (pictured right), followed a trail from a house on Wednesday 4 January 2012 and found Darren McGregor, aged 30.

McGregor from Corby was sentenced to 18 months at Northampton Crown Court on Wednesday 29 August 2012.

Police had arrested one man at the scene. Luke, who is nearly three, located two further men, one of whom was Darren McGregor.

The two other men were sentenced separately in February. All three pleaded guilty to the offence.

Luke's handler Officer Ben Lindley, said: "This was a good result for us. Thanks to Luke we were able to track the offenders and recover the items that had been stolen from the property."
