Man's Dog Turns Him In To Police


A German man on the run from police was given away by his own dog, which revealed its master’s hiding place by wagging its tail while standing next to the small cupboard he was cowering in, authorities said on Monday. Police called at the 52-year-old man’s flat in Euskirchen near Cologne in western Germany on Friday, and an acquaintance of his opened the door carrying the suspect’s dog.

“The man claimed not to know where the wanted man was. When he put the dog down, it proceeded with a wagging tail to a small cupboard… and stood expectantly in front of it,” police said in a statement.This prompted the officers to search the cupboard, which was just over a yard high and two and a half feet wide, where they found the man “hunched up inside.”A police spokesman told AFP he was not able to say what the man was wanted for, but that it was “not a capital crime.”He declined to give the man’s name, nor that of his erstwhile four-legged friend, reportedly a Jack Russell terrier.
