Cumbrian police officer top dog at sniffing out drug dealers

A police officer has been named top dog among hound handlers after helping sniff out burglars and drug dealers.

PC Stuart Woodward was awarded the ‘dog handler of the year’ award at Cumbria Police for his quick-thinking in tracking down crooks alongside his trusted crime-cracking canines.

PC Woodward, 30, is the first person to be awarded the George Bell trophy – named after the policeman who formed the county’s police dog section.

Successes for the officer, who often works alongside German shepherd Barney and springer spaniel Hedley, include arresting a suspect after a break-in at a golf club.

A separate operation led to the seizure of drugs worth £15,000.
