Police dog Maximus has another four arrests to add to the list.

The Ontario Provincial Police K-9 Unit and the Emergency Response Team responded to a property in Oldcastle after a call about a suspicious person Thursday morning.

An officer reviewed security camera footage showing four suspects outside a business on Concession Road 8 around 3:10 a.m.

Maximus soon located the four, and police arrested three men from Windsor and one from Amherstburg.

All four, aged 36, 47, 37, and 35, all face a charge of theft under $5,000, although one of the men from Windsor is also charged with possessing methamphetamine.

The four will appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Windsor.
