A switched on police Officer from the Cleveland & Durham Road Policing unit managed to track an offender down by following a set of footprints in the Snow.
As the beast from the east took hold of Hartlepool, one driver decided to risk it not thinking about the footprints he was leaving behind him.
He really wasn’t counting on Police Interceptors cop Spike following the freshly made footprints which led him to the suspected driver.
When confronted and question about the car he simply didn’t know anything about a car.
Spike spotted an uninsured car driving in Hartlepool after it was travelling a little bit too fast.
Spike then located the car parked nearby with the engine still warm and with freshly laid snow spike noticed some footprints coming out of the drivers side of the car and decided to follow them.
Before he knew it he caught up to a driver making some fresh snow footprints who said he had nothing todo with the car.
But spike knowledge of the good set of footprints in the snow from the drivers door pretty damning deciding to stop search the male and locating a set of keys.
When Spike checked it the keys belonged to the same said car he located the mans name and address inside the car.
Spike said “Top Tip…. if you’re going to try to bluff it do it on a fine day and don’t leave your name and address in the car!”
Donuts and cake all round another top result and an uninsured driver taken off the roads.
