Monroe deputy resigns, arrested after being accused of animal cruelty

MONROE COUNTY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A Monroe County sheriff’s deputy was arrested and later resigned 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.
