With an owner like this, the dog might as well be on ice.
A Excelsior district man who was arrested on narcotics and weapons charges Sunday had allegedly possessed a framed picture of his dog covered with methamphetamine.
About 6:30 p.m., police said, officers responded to the 200 block of Vienna Street on a report that an armed man was smoking methamphetamine in his apartment.
The suspect reportedly gave the officers the green light to search his room.
“The officers entered his room and found a small dog belonging to the suspect, along with two glass pipes containing methamphetamine,” police at Ingleside Station said. “The officers also found a quantity of methamphetamine on a picture frame with an image of the suspect's dog.”
The officers also allegedly found a loaded pistol, .22 caliber long rifle with ammunition and a pellet rifle in the suspect's closet. They gathered the evidence and arrested the suspect, whose name was not immediately available.
