BCSO Fugitive Unit Arrested Daniel Compton Puranda and Catherine Oyuela at Residence In Palm Bay

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As most of you know, just a little over a week ago Deputies from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office rescued two abused dogs that were in critical condition after being left to starve by their owners who moved out of the home where they were staying leaving the dogs behind with no way to survive.

The dogs were subsequently taken to our Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Care Center where our Veterinarian Staff, Care Center Team, and amazing volunteers nursed them back to health after they were near death.

As we reported yesterday, the two dogs had recovered significantly enough since their rescue that we were able to place them in loving foster homes where they can continue to fully recover and be available for adoption to forever homes.

Today I am proud to tell you that late last night following an extensive criminal investigation by our Animal Cruelty Unit we arrested the two perpetrators that committed one of the most evil acts of Animal Cruelty I have ever seen.

Following the issuance of warrants for two counts of Animal Cruelty and two counts of Abandonment of an Animal our Fugitive Unit arrested Daniel Compton Puranda and Catherine Oyuela at a residence in Palm Bay.

While our Animal Care Team found new homes for the poor helpless abused animals our Fugitive Unit brought the abusers to their new home at the Brevard County Jail where I personally greeted them to make certain they got the very best accommodations we have to offer.

Now it’s their turn to be locked up and dependent on someone to care for them!! Fortunately for them though our team members are professionals and will always do the right thing even when dealing with the worst our society has to offer!

Great job by everyone involved to get these two off our streets and into our Jail where they deserve to be!!

– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
