Two Pasadena men have been arrested and charged with aggravated cruelty to an animal in the theft of a dog named Casper in Baltimore whose neck was later slashed, Anne Arundel County police said.
George Martin Treas, 22, of the 7100 block of Fort Smallwood Road, and Robert Lee Grim, 25, of the first block of Arundel Road, were arrested Saturday, police said. Grim, who police initially said lived in Brooklyn, was also charged with possession of 2.4 grams of heroin.
Animal control officers found Casper injured in the 700 block of Mattawa Court in Millersville on Jan. 3. Witnesses later told police that on Jan. 2 they saw two people use a belt to pull a dog into a van in the 3400 block of Seventh St. in the city.
The dog was under treatment at a veterinary hospital in Anne Arundel.
