A couple of Oklahoma boys were jailed after trying to do a solid for an old dead lady.
Two Wilson residents have been charged with second-degree burglary after they attempted to free a dog from the city animal shelter so they could take it to its owner’s funeral over the weekend. But the plan went awry, Wilson Police Chief Felix Hernandez said. The two men spent time in jail and a juvenile was cited and released to his parents.
The mixed-breed dog, called Luke, was picked up April 22 by the dogcatcher after he was caught once too often running the streets of Wilson. His owner, Saundra Vickers, 53, died the next day from health complications, Hernandez said. The word about town — and what prompted the attempted dog break — was that Luke was going to be euthanized after his owner’s death, Hernandez said.
I dunno why they didn’t just adopt the dog. But, this makes for a much better story — look for the television movie on FOX this summer.
