ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Angelina County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 46-year-old Lufkin man on Tuesday after he allegedly shot and killed his neighbor's 10-month-old female husky puppy and dumped its body at another location to hide what he had done.
Marvin Anselmo Fraser, 46, is still being held in the Angelina County jail on a third-degree felony charge of tampering with physical evidence and a state-jail felony charge of cruelty non-livestock animals charge. Collectively, his bail was set at $5,000.
According to the arrest affidavit, a resident of the 200 block of Charles Road called the ACSO and said his neighbor has shot his dog. The complainant said the dog went missing on June 24, and he began searching the perimeter of his property and the general area, but he couldn't find the dog.
The man talked to a boy who lived at a nearby residence and asked the child if he had seen his dog. The little boy said no.
At that point, the complainant started mowing his lawn and noticed the boy standing in his yard, crying. After the man finished mowing, he went inside, and he heard a loud noise from the front door.
When the man went to check, he found a stick with a note that said that Fraser shot the dog with a BB gun first, the affidavit stated. The little boy went inside, and then heard, "Pow! Pow!" The affidavit stated that once the boy heard the noise, he looked outside and saw that Fraser had shot the dog, which started crying before it died.
According to the affidavit, the ACSO investigator learned that Fraser put the dead dog in the bed of his pickup and took the body to the Luf-Tex Trail Riders clubhouse located at425 Ruth Lane.
