LAKE JACKSON, Texas - A Lake Jackson-area man has been charged with animal cruelty after he allegedly beat and tried to freeze a woman's dog.
Brazoria County Jail records show 20-year-old Seth Michael Drone, of Richwood, was being held Tuesday on a charge of cruelty to non-livestock animals/torture. Bond is $25,000 for Drone, who was booked April 24.
Lake Jackson police Assistant Chief Paul Kibodeaux says the incident happened April 19 when a woman who lives at the home went out, returned, couldn't find her pet and then located her injured small dog in the freezer. The woman took the animal to a veterinarian.
Kibodeaux on Tuesday had no current condition on the dog or details on the relationship between the woman and the suspect.
Jail records don't list an attorney for Drone.
