An 18-year-old Alaska man faces charges after he was accused of letting a sled dog and two chickens die of thirst, then stealing a car and gun from the homeowner who paid him to care for the animals.

Alaska State Troopers said Blair Fredrick Lawless was charged with felony counts of vehicle theft and theft, four misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty and one count of misdemeanor criminal mischief.

Troopers were called to a Fairbanks man's home May 30 after he found the dead animals among his 12 other sled dogs and other chickens, all without water for several days when temperatures were in the 70s.

The homeowner also found his car and a .357-caliber revolver had been stolen.

Lawless was arrested during a traffic stop in Glennallen.
