This is the moment a not-so-loyal pet dog betrays his owner by alerting cops to a stash of drugs buried in his garden.

The pooch that is now under protective custody after being taken in by the police officers gave his drug-trafficker owner away during a police operation dubbed ‘Hot Money’ in the Brazilian region of Vale do Araguaia on 20th May.

Footage taken at the scene shows how the Miniature Pinscher starts digging up part of his owner’s garden in front of the police officers, prompting one of them to reach into the hole and apparently pull out a bundle of drugs.

Three people were arrested at the scene for drug trafficking and illegal firearm’s possession.

Several locations were searched and officers also seized a “large” amount of money in cash, which they photographed, showing several thick bundles of notes.

The police also seized money held in 11 different bank accounts, along with an unspecified number of vehicles.

After its owner’s arrest, the dog was taken into the care of the police officers who participated in the raid who are currently looking after him.

In total, 28 court orders were carried out by the police in the municipalities of Barra do Garcas, Cuiaba, Querencia, Porto Esperidiao, Pontes e Lacerda, Aragarcas and Jussara.

Seven of the orders involved taking suspects into preventive custody and the remainder were search and seizure operations.

The court orders carried out were the culmination of investigations into drug trafficking in the region that began in January.

The identities of the suspects have not been divulged.
