Meet Flurry, Lincolnshire Police's latest recruit. He's been trained as a digital detection dog and can sniff out mobile phones, hard drives and other digital devices.
Assistant Ch Con Kerrin Wilson said: "Criminals are becoming more tech savvy and hiding evidence on sim cards etc.
"We needed to develop a system to be able to find those who, are very sneaky, hide them in the most obscure places.
"The scent the dog is searching for is a digital scent which comes off all digital devices," he added.
Dogs working for other forces around the country have discovered devices behind sockets and under floorboards.
