The boys were found hiding in a bush by a police dog after the car was abandoned.

Officers were called to the break-in at Highmoor Road, in Rowley Regis, in the early hours of this morning.

A Volkswagen car was stolen from the address.

The car was later seen in Bournbrook Crescent, Halesowen, where a member of the public spotted three boys acting suspiciously and running away from the scene.

West Midlands Police officers arrived and the group fled down Carters Lane. Minutes later, police dog Romeo tracked the three teenagers to Manor Lane, where they were found hiding in a bush.

A 12-year-old suffered minor injuries after being bitten by the police dog and has since been arrested on suspicion of burglary.

A 16-year-old boy has also been arrested on suspicion of burglary. While a 17-year-old was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle and possession of cannabis.

All three remain in police custody this afternoon.

Anyone with information is asked to call West Midlands Police on 101, quoting log number 369 of June 29.
