MOULTRIE, GA (AP) -

Police in south Georgia say the suspect in a residential burglary apparently drowned three puppies inside the house before fleeing the scene.

WALB, a local television station in Albany, reports a Moultrie man returned home over the weekend to find evidence of a burglary and the bodies of the puppies.

Authorities say they were drowned in a large trash can in the bathroom that had been filled with water.

Police say they have identified a person of interest, but have not disclosed additional details.

The suspect will likely be charged with criminal damage to property and three counts of animal cruelty.
