PORTLAND — A Portland police gang enforcement detective arrested a 22-year-old man accused of taking his ex-girlfriend’s pet dog.
It took a little longer, but officers also located the dog, a Pomeranian named G-Diddy.
The victim told police last Saturday that Jeray Jessie broke into her house and took several items of her personal property and her pet.
Detectives found Jessie at a hospital where he was being treated for a gunshot wound, but refusing to cooperate with officers investigating the shooting.
He was arrested Thursday on burglary and theft charges.
Police say coverage of the story resulted in numerous tips, and a person who wanted to remain anonymous gave the dog to the police, who returned it to the owner.
