A suspected thief is in custody after he was found hiding in a bush by a police dog.

German shepherd Eli sniffed out the alleged crook following reports two men were trying to steal telephone cables near the junction of Spring Lane and St Martin’s Hill in Canterbury.

The man was arrested in Military Road shortly after the call at 9.20pm last night, along with a second suspect.
