Derbyshire police dog helps hunt down suspected drugs trafficking van
A police dog from Derbyshire Constabulary’s yesterday helped officers track down a van which was suspected of being used for drug trafficking on roads across the county.
Mya, who works as a dedicated police dog for the force, helped Derbyshire Road Crime Unit in recovering a large amount of cash which was found inside a van that was suspected of drug trafficking in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
Officers were initially alerted to the suspicious looking vehicle after it travelled past traffic police and triggered their Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR).
After police dog Mya who was ‘on hand as always’ joined in the search of the white van, officers then arrested two people for money laundering and immigration offences who were then remanded into custody.
