The police search dog is drafted in by Scottish Borders Community Action Team when they go on the hunt for illegal substances.

Last week Juke helped the team find a number of drugs stashed in the region, including heroin and cocaine.

Now Scottish Borders Police are urging the public to come forward with information to help Juke locate more drugs.
