A police officer in the UK relied on some special skills to nab a man on the run.

Wiltshire police officers were trying to pull over a suspicious vehicle in Swindon, when all four of its occupants tried to escape.

Quick-thinking officer- PC Steve Hutton- pretended to have a police dog with him according to The BBC, to get one of the suspects to stop.  It worked.

The man –who took off on foot after a stinger device stopped the car –fell for the officer’s trick.

This is the vehicle in which four suspects attempted to flee police. Thanks to the quick thinking of one officer, one suspect was apprehended.

As Hutton was chasing him, he not only shouted to the suspect that he had a dog but took it one step further  and let out a “few fake barks.” Apparently that was enough to convince the man to surrender.

He only realized there was no dog, after he was already cuffed. “By the look on his face you could see he was a little bit disappointed with himself,” Hutton said.

Meantime, Hutton is enjoying a little extra attention from his colleagues and the local media.

“Some people on the shift think I should now do a dog-handler job without the dog.”
