The father of an ambulance worker – who was the victim of a thief whilst attending a roadside accident – has sent a heartwarming note to the police dog who tracked down his son’s stolen phone.

A member of the GMP canine unit successfully sniffed out the device – which was taken from a paramedic who’d stopped to help at the scene of an accident in Milnrow on his way home from work.

A thief took off in the key worker’s car, but Police Dog Jaeger has since found his missing phone in a bush near Newbold, which has now been returned to its rightful owner.

The father of the NHS worker has since sent a letter to the dog and PC to show his appreciation for their work in locating the device and searching for the missing vehicle.

“I cannot understand how the dog managed to do this, it is amazing,” the letter reads.


“Thanks again and give Jaeger a hug from me and pass on my thanks to all involved.”

The GMP Tactical Dog Unit shared a picture of the letter on Twitter this morning (July 7) and applauded the “excellent work by PD Jaeger and PC Heath.”


“It makes it all worth while when you get a thank you letter like this,” the tweet reads.

“Great work team.”
