Mist gets her man at park demo
A dramatic police scenario played out on Whanga¯rei’s Okara Park, involving two helicopters, armed police, a canine crime fighter and an “offender” dressed in a red tutu wielding a gun.
It was police dog Mist that had the final say, tackling the offender and dragging him along the ground before officers pounced and handcuffed the supposed bank robber, much to the delight of the crowd on Saturday. The scenario was part of a police recruitment day and provided the crowd with some action before the Taniwha kicked off against the Waikato side in the ITM Cup.
