BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff’s Office announced they arrest a suspect wanted for animal cruelty after deputies helped rescue two puppies who were left in a dumpster.
Sheriff Wayne Ivey appeared in a video released over social media on Tuesday that described the details in the case and showed him escort Dallas Singletary to jail.
Singletary is charged with two misdemeanors – Animal Cruelty-Torment Deprive Mutilate Kill and Abandon Animal to Die Sick Maim Infirm Disease.
Singletary allegedly dragged the puppies across a parking lot while kicking them, and then tossed them into a dumpster.
Ivey says that Singletary was on drugs and high when he allegedly abandoned the puppies.
“He did it all because he was high, he was all messed up on drugs, and he was paranoid that law enforcement was after him,” Ivey said. “Well let me tell you: I am after him now.”
Ivey said witnesses in the area pulled the puppies out of the dumpster after Singletary left, and then called authorities.
