Two burglars caught in the act were stopped by a police dog.
PD Gizmo was called to support Great Yarmouth Police on Thursday (June 6) after officers had spotted two suspects breaking into a house.
The burglars refused to come out until they spotted the canine detective, police said.
Norfolk and Suffolk Police Dogs tweeted: "PD Gizmo was introduced to them and funnily enough they changed their minds."
The suspects were arrested.
While PD Gizmo was busy foiling a burglary, his colleague, PD Toby, helped police involved in an operation targeting organised crime.
A quantity of controlled substances was found in a car and caravan in Great Yarmouth on Thursday (June 6).
