Catching a bad Bastard

Sydney Morning Herald

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.

    In NZ the criminal would sue the police for letting a dog bite him, one of our judges would halve his jail time if his lawyer states he’s sorry, and we’d have Green politicians arguing that jail is not the place him.

      And if he made people laugh he would be acquitted.

    I do love a happy ending. And its great that it has an animal theme. Jeez how good would it be to be a police dog? (except when your getting shot or stabbed).

    “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.”

    What they didnt tell you is that it took 3 hours for the cops to to put the handcuffs on Mr Naden – how sad nerver mind.  They also stiched his wound with a rusty can opener……..
