DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (BRPROUD) — Man arrested after allegedly abandoning a dog at a Denham Springs smoke shop.

The Denham Springs Police Department said officers found what they described as a “loose, abandoned” dog early Nov. 9 at Adams Smoke Shop.

Footage obtained by investigators showed a dog forcefully dropped off and abandoned at the smoke shop by a man. The police department said tips led to the identity of the suspect.

The suspect, Joshua Tudor of Denham Springs, told officers he dropped off the dog because he was unhappy with it coming from a neighboring home several times.

He was arrested and issued a misdemeanor summons for cruelty to animals.
