Sunday, Jul 24, 2011County: Bossier
Alleged: Alvin Ray Jones
A man has been arrested in Bossier City after police found two dogs dead from heat and dehydration and two others suffering, a release from the department says.
Alvin Ray Jones, 28, was arrested late Monday on four counts of animal cruelty and one count of possession of marijuana after he showed up at Bossier City Animal Control to claim his two surviving dogs.
Police found two dead dogs and the live dogs in his backyard Sunday in the 1400 block of Teekell Street without food, water or shelter from the 100-degree temperatures reached that day. Teekell Street runs north off Shed Road just west of Meadowview Elementary School.
Police had been called by a neighbor who saw the two dead dogs in the yard. Police arrived to find the dogs tied to the end of chains lying in the sun without food or water. The living dogs were running loose in the yard but also did not have access to food or water.
A Bossier City Animal Control officer recovered the animals. No one was home when police arrived and a note was left informing the occupants that officials had the dogs.
When Jones arrived to pick up his dogs, animal control personnel called police, who took him into custody and discovered the marijuana.
Jones first was booked into the Bossier City Jail and today was transferred to the Bossier Parish Maximum facility near Plain Dealing.
