A POLICE dog has helped to track a suspected burglar.
Cumbria police arrested a man from West Yorkshire on suspicion of burglary when a member of public raised the alarm after witnessing suspicious activity in Windermere.
Just after 2.15am yesterday, Monday January 28, police received a call from a member of the public reporting suspicious activity in a commercial garage in Rayrigg Road, Bowness.
Officers were dispatched to the scene immediately and conducted a search in the area. Evidence of an attempted break in was found after three windows within the garage had been smashed. This caused around £600 worth of damage.
A significant amount of blood was also located on scene, suggesting that the offender(s) may have injured themselves. A large number of officers attended, including dog handlers, to conduct a search in the area. A police dog led its handler to a nearby caravan park where officers located evidence of a further attempted break in at a caravan.
As a result of a search of the area, police located a 37-year-old man from West Yorkshire in the vicinity of Rayrigg Road at around 3.30am.
The man was arrested on suspicion of burglary and attempted burglary. He was taken to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary after being found with a wound to his hand.
He was discharged from hospital yesterday and has been released on police bail until February 11 pending forensic evidence, with police inquiries continuing.
