When they and other officers arrived on the scene, they spotted three men acting suspiciously in the school grounds.

When the men ran off, Constable Pacholek dispatched PD Iggy and he soon detained one of the suspects, who required medical treatment for minor dog bite injuries.

Levenmouth Police Sergeant Craig Fyall said: “Buckhaven High School has been targeted by thieves over the past week and I am delighted that PD Iggy may have helped to prevent another incident.”
