A man was arrested for allegedly breaking into a home on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts and painting the resident’s dog purple before fleeing the scene with a stolen vehicle, police said Sunday.
Felix Reagan faces multiple charges, including breaking and entering in the daytime with the intent to commit a felony, cruelty to animals and larceny of a motor vehicle, according to the Oak Bluffs Police Department.
Reagan on Saturday allegedly forced a first-floor window open, stole some items from the house and painted the animal. Police say he also stole a vehicle and crashed it before fleeing on foot. Authorities say they found him with purple paint on his pants.
It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer, the Associated Press reported.
