A murderer and sex offender seven years on the run. Police mocked for not nailing him. So they set up motion detectors and hunt him from a distance.
Little did he know, a simple attempt to thaw some meat for a much-needed feed led directly to his capture.
About 8pm on Wednesday, motion sensors secreted in a neglected Rawdon Vale cabin alerted police that somebody was home. Police knew Mr Naden had broken into the ramshackle property before and had bugged the house and 48 others in the hope he would return.
Chuck the dog had a blinder.
Mr Naden ran back inside and attempted to flee through a back entrance, but a police dog, Chuck, gave chase.
”He literally had no idea we were there until we confronted him,” an officer said.
The dog locked its jaws onto Mr Naden’s left leg and did not let go until handcuffs bound his wrists. The police had got their man without a shot being fired.
Sounds like Mark Mitchell’s dog that liked to chew on bad bastards.
