TWO puppies stolen following a burglary in Pembrokeshire have been found safe and well after police used a 'tactical stop' to arrest two men.

Less than an hour after receiving the burglary report, where two Saluki Collie Greyhound puppies were stolen in Haverfordwest, suspects were tracked, stopped and arrested.

At 1.25pm police received the report of a burglary at a property on Hywel Road. The suspects were reported to have made off in a black Nissan Nivara.

The car was spotted by Carmarthenshire roads policing officers on the A40 road at Nant y Ci heading towards Cross Hands.

The car turned off at Cross Hands Business Park and roads policing officers from Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire carried out a three vehicle box tactic to bring the car to a safe stop.

The puppies were recovered safe and well.

At 2.14pm a 20-year-old man from Eastbourne and a 15-year-old boy from Polegate were arrested on suspicion of burglary and possession of an offensive weapon.

They have both been released under investigation.

Pembs RPU tweeted: "Males had been reported as having stolen two puppies during a burglary in Haverfordwest.

"Puppies located safe and well in the rear of the vehicle."
