GA Man is Arrested for Animal Cruelty (and other Charges) after “Little Guy”, his (former) Terrier-Mix, Tested Positive for Methamphetamine
Meet “Little Guy”, a Terrier-mix. That’s him below (and no, I did not obstruct his face, nor can I explain why his identity needed to be obscured)…
On Tuesday, August 18th, 2015 Jackson County, Georgia Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the Hoschton Animal Hospital in Hoschton, Georgia in regard to “Little Guy”, who had been brought to the veterinary clinic the day before, by his human, Marty Rogers (who’s mug shot is pictured below).
Responding Deputies made contact with veterinarian Kevin Chapman who advised that on August 17, 2015 Rogers had brought the Terrier-mix to the hospital because he was sick and he took it to see if they could tell him what was wrong with him. Dr. Chapman said that Little Guy “was extremely nervous and constantly paces and panting and restless.” The vet stated that blood work revealed that “Little Guy [had] tested positive for Methamphetamine.”
It took a few days but Sheriff’s Deputies did secure an warrant for Rogers arrest charging him with Animal Cruelty. When they served the warrant on Rogers at his residence they found both methamphetamine and and a motorcycle which had been reported stolen out of South Carolina, resulting in additional felony charges for felony drug possession and “theft by receiving stolen property”. (You can read the arrest report below or click here to view it online.)
Per John Deltoro, a Jackson County Animal Officer, “Little Guy” was seized by animal control and Rogers has relinquished ownership. Deltoro added that: “Veterinarians don’t have a whole lot of cases with these kind of symptoms. The doctor just took a human drug test kit and tested the urine and it came up positive (for meth)”. As for Little Guy’s future, Deltoro said: “I will transfer the dog to another facility that does a lot of adoptions.” Memo to Marty Rogers:
