    Two Maryland police officers helped return a lost dog to its owner last weekend -- and used a creative piece of equipment to help keep the dog safe.

    According to a Facebook post by Prince George's County Police, two officers found the dog at an Oxon Hill bank parking lot. 

    The dog still had its collar with its name -- Sophie -- along with the owner's contact information.

    In order to keep the dog safe while they got her back to her rightful owner, officers Matthew Birney and Simon VanLeuvan used a strip of caution tape as a make-shift leash.

    According to the department, the dog was safely returned to her owners!
