LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A 20-year-old Lake Charles man has been indicted on charges of aggravated cruelty to animals and theft of animals $500 to $1,500.

Tyler Scott Sanders was indicted Thursday by a Calcasieu Parish Grand Jury.

Sanders was arrested in December and has been accused of stealing and then abusing a pit-bull puppy, city police said.

"The arrest stems from an investigation that began when a puppy was stolen from a residence on Arkansas Street," Deputy Chief Mark Kraus said in a news release. "On Nov. 21, the puppy was recovered by Animal Services after receiving an injured animal call from a concerned mail carrier."

Sanders is being held on a $27,000 bond.

Kraus said the puppy had severe life-threatening injuries including broken bones, a fractured skull and multiple pellet gun wounds.

"The puppy, now known as Halo, is on the road to recovery but still suffers from limited mobility and vision," Kraus said.
