A police dog helped officers uncover evidence of drug use during an operation in St Ives.
Dash was brought in to help officers search for evidence of the social use of illegal drugs in pubs and clubs in the town.
The operation took place on April 29 and was the third operation of its kind with further initiatives having taken place in St Neots and Huntingdon last month.
Thanks to responses by Dash, five people were searched during the operation and one woman was found to be in possession of a small amount of cocaine. He also found another wrap of cocaine which had been discarded under a large bin.
The woman found in possession of cocaine later received a community resolution.
