Camera at popular dog dumping site leads to first arrest

- A crackdown on animal dumping in Southern Dallas has led to police’s first arrest.

The Dallas Marshal's Office teamed up with the SPCA of Texas to post a camera near Teagarden and Dowdy Ferry roads, a common dog dumping spot.

Last month, a Dallas man was caught abandoning a 1-year-old dog. After an investigation, a warrant was issued for Gorge Spears. He turned himself in Monday.

Spears is in the Dallas County Jail facing criminal animal cruelty charges.

His dog, Claira-Belle was found by witnesses and was later transferred to the SPCA. She has since been adopted.
