OAKS BLUFF, Mass. — A Massachusetts man is accused of breaking into a home, painting the victim’s dog purple and stealing a car over the course of one weekend, according to WFTX.

Police say they received reports of a stolen car and crash on Saturday. Several minutes later, they got a burglary call and upon investigation, discovered several items were stolen and the family’s dog had been painted purple.

After following up with a neighbor, he gave them the description of 19-year-old Felix Reagan, who he said knocked on his door earlier in the day.

Raegan was eventually arrested and taken into custody. Police found him with the break-in victim’s belongings and purple paint on his hands.
