It was a police movie. The only scene I remember is that the main police officer/detective responds to a barricaded subject. He then uses the bad guys credit card to rent a car across the street and crash out into the building where the bad guy was.
Sorry I only spotted this yesterday, seemed hugely familiar, i had a couple of ideas in my head, so I asked a friend that is also an old movie buff and he wasn't sure but named one movie it could be which was also one in my head, so I pulled the movie out and there it was between the 15th - 19th minutes. It is K9 - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097637/
