A MALE is being held in custody after he was found by a police dog trying to hide behind a fallen tree following a pursuit near Dyserth.

Last night (May 28), the driver decided to run away after being pursued by officers, and tried to hide in woodland.

After being guided into the area by a drone, police dog Kratos, pictured above, found him attempting to hide behind the tree.

He was then arrested and taken to custody.
