Burglars/Killers of South Bend Dog Located April 21, 2010

On November 9, 2009, a home was burglarized in the 2500 Block of W. Bonds Ave. in the City. While in the process of committing the burglary, a suspect in the case shot and killed the dog that resided at that location. At this time, the SBPD announces that one suspect has been charged in the case and charges against a second suspect are pending.

This case was resolved in no small part by the diligence of the investigators, through Crime Stoppers and the help of community members.

Charged with Felony Burglary and Animal Cruelty is suspect #1:

Suspect #1) Brett Walker, male 20 of South Bend (currently incarcerated: St. Joseph County Jail)
Suspect #2) An 18 year old male of South Bend (currently incarcerated at an Indiana juvenile facility)

Both Walker and the juvenile accomplice are incarcerated on charges unrelated to the November, 2009 case. The 18 year old was age 17 when the crime was committed and therefore the case against him must be initiated in the Juvenile Court system.

During the same time period a second burglary in the general vicinity was committed and again, a dog was killed. SBPD continues to investigate that case and no arrests have been made. Anyone with information in that case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 574.288.STOP
