A man was arrested after breaking into a home and spray painting a dog purple.
Police said that Felix Reagan, broke into a house on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, and painted the family’s dog purple.
He then stole a few items and the family’s car keys before fleeing the scene in their vehicle, police said. He soon crashed the car and fled on foot.
Police were called after Reagan, who looked disheveled, knocked on someone’s door and asked for a person, who did not live at the residence.
Police allegedly located Reagan while he was looking into the window of another home. He was arrested by the Oak Bluffs Police Department.
Authorities said that they found purple paint on his pants.
Reagan faces a number of charges, including breaking and entering in the daytime with the intent to commit a felony, cruelty to animals and larceny of a motor vehicle.
