Burglar’s fear of dogs leads to arrest

A 22-year-old burglar called the police during a break-in in Leidschendam early on Monday morning because he was afraid of being attacked by police dogs.

The man was seen breaking in and when police and dogs arrived, he ran for cover in nearby woods. He then phoned the police station saying he was afraid the dogs would bite him. He was arrested without the use of canine force.
