Police, camera, action

The police helicopter hovered menacingly overhead, tracking our passage, then as we rounded the bend two squad cars were waiting at the canalside, their occupants on the closed swing bridge near Blackburn.
"It's a fair cop, officer, we probably were doing 4.5 mph," I was about to confess.
Then the 'copter swung away and the officers returned to their squad cars. Seemingly it wasn't us they were after but a "wanted person" who was "hiding out" in the area. Despite the helicopter and cars, it was a good old police dog that sniffed him out.
Wonder what he'd done? Perhaps we'll be on police, camera, action one day?
