Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — An 18-year-old from Sonora was arrested following an incident over the weekend.

Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office Spokesperson Sgt. Scott Johnson says deputies investigated a report of underage drinking Sunday morning at a home in the 20000 block of Lyons Bald Mountain Road. When they arrived, they learned that 18-year-old Morgan Kenneth Styre, and an unidentified 16-year-old, had physically assaulted and killed a six-year-old Jack Russell Terrier the previous day. Styre was arrested for animal cruelty. The Sheriff’s Office is still trying to locate the 16-year-old male that was involved.

The Sheriff’s Office says the dog belonged to the Styre family.
