It had to be a Labrador! A U.K. police Labrador Retriever is the first dog ever to be trained to sniff out stolen metal!

The two-year-old Lab, Jazz, joined the Met Police last month. His job is to track down thieves who steal cabling from the rail network.

The smart Labrador follows the scent of metal treated with a traceable DNA solution knows as SelectaDNA.

Jazz has already made a bust! He sniffed out one scrap dealer in Essex that has since been shut down.

The head of the nationwide metal theft taskforce, Detective Superintendent Alison Evans, said: “Metal thieves cause misery for the millions of people who live and work in the capital, whether by stealing from the rail network, power lines, telecommunications cable, or elsewhere, attacking our cultural heritage, and damaging the country’s infrastructure in the process.
