(Scroll down for video) Police finally caught the suspect behind a 6 month long tire slashing spree.

Police in the United Kingdom said that the suspect responsible for damaging car tires in Cumbria, has turned out to be a neighborhood dog.

Over 10 vehicles parked in the areas of Jocks Hill and Sands, had suffered tire punctures. Surveillance camera videos revealed the culprit to be the dog named Jess.

The dog was biting the tires regularly during its daily walk. The owners of Jess, who were unaware that the dog was causing the damage, have pledged to keep a close eye on the dog in the future.

“The dog got close to the cars and the owners believed that it was just sniffing around the tires. The owners have been contacted and were very surprised. They apologized for the situation,” a police spokesperson said.

“Jean and Edward Morgan also agree to compensate the victims,” the police spokesperson added.
