A Big Bend youth was arraigned Wednesday in Grantsville related to an incident where he was reportedly shooting a gun at a Broomstick-Lovada Rd. residence in October, with one of the shots striking a family dog.|
The new charges indicate he is being charged with other crimes.
Brian Leo Huffman, 19 (left) was taken before magistrate Teresa Robinson Wednesday and charged with cruelty to animals, giving false information, breaking and entering, and burglary.
He is being held in Central Regional Jail on $41,000 bond.
Following the October incident, police charged Huffman with underage consumption, fleeing on foot and obstructing.
The criminal complaint says Huffman "unlawfully and feloniously shot a dog belonging to Esther Wilson."
The complaint says during the investigation, police found a .22 caliber rifle that had been stolen in Roane County. The gun, according to the complaint, was stolen from Donald Owens on Toms Run in October, 2008. A second stolen rifle is connected to the case.
Police said Huffman claimed the rifle belonged to his grandfather.
