Cop dog finds Vic man in abandoned home


A police dog has caught a man who allegedly made a run for it after being found with a knife in Melbourne.

The 21-year-old was pulled over in Caulfield early on Saturday and accompanied officers to a nearby home before scaling the fence and running through several backyards.

A hydroponic set up was found at the home, police say.

Police dog Isaac eventually tracked the man to an abandoned house and he was charged with possessing a weapon, drug offences and escaping police and providing false details.
