Man thrown in Jail for trying to Break his Dog out of Pound

A Connecticut man is in Jail after police say he was caught trying to break into the local pound to steal his own dog.

Walter Scovish, 55, had his dog taken away last week when he was arrested o

n drug charges.

After his release, the suspect broke into the West Hartford animal shelter to rescue his Indian greyhound named Missy.

Scovish says he did it because Missy has special needs.

Authorities were called Monday morning when an alarm went off.

They found the man hiding inside a tube outside a nearby firehouse.

He is being held on $150,000 bond. Missy still remains at the pound.
