"Our drone officer spotted him, and directed the dog handler and local officers to him to secure his capture."

Captions have been added to the video, explaining, how the man tried to evade them.

They say: "He crawls. He climbs. PD Gas tracks the man down. The man is arrested and taken off to custody."
