Monroe deputy resigns, arrested after being accused of animal cruelty
The sheriff’s office says neighbors complained about a neglected dog at Dekota Dobbs’ house on Shaw Avenue. Deputies found a malnourished dog covered in fleas inside Dobbs’ home.
He told them the animal was fed twice a fay, and was up to date on all its vaccinations but wouldn’t gain weight. Deputies sent the dog to a vet who determined it was malnourished.
Dobbs was placed on administrative leave and later resigned from the sheriff’s office.
He bonded out of jail this week.
