Puppy arsonist on the loose
Somebody is going around setting puppies on fire and Arvada police and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department are looking to see if it is the same person... A worker at the Bally's Health Club on Bowles Avenue near Southwest Plaza said he was walking outside, around 11:30 p.m., when he smelled something burning. At the back of the gym he spotted a small dog on fire in the stairwell. The dog had its legs bound and a fire accelerant had been poured on it, Jefferson County spokesman Jim Shires said. The worker said that he noticed a man, standing on top of the stairs, holding two other dogs. When the man saw that he was spotted, he dropped one of the dogs and ran away with the other dog. The dog in the stairwell was left at the scene, where it died. The man who ran from the scene is described as white, in his mid-20s, with medium-length brown hair. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and tan or khaki pants.
