In San Francisco, California, the suspect who tossed a Chihuahua to his death from the seventh floor parking garage after breaking into the owner’s vehicle, is believed to have been arrested more than 40 times before having been apprehended on Saturday and charged with animal cruelty.
According to KocoNews5, Wakeen Best, 35, was arrested after a police sergeant spotted him near Polk and Bush Streets. Officers had been responding to a report concerning an auto burglary and a dead dog. The victim had returned to his car and saw his four-year-old Chihuahua, named Dunky being held by an unknown person. At first the owner thought his dog had escaped from the car and had fallen from the seventh floor of the parking garage, but then he saw his car had been broken into and damaged. In just a flash, his dog was thrown off the seventh floor – the brown and black Chihuahua died moments later; his tiny bones broken at impact.
A report from the San Francisco Chronicle, states Best has been arrested dozens of times and has spent only a total of a few weeks in jail. His favorite crime seems to be auto burglaries, and the Sutter-Stockton Garage near Union Square, has been one of his favorite spots. Best has had numerous property-crime arrests and short jail sentences. His other arrests included prostitution-related loitering and possession of methamphetamine.
Best now faces charges of felony and misdemeanor counts, including auto burglary, cruelty to animals, vandalism, possession of a weapon, burglary tools and drug paraphernalia. He is being held without bail and is to appear in court Wednesday.
