ARLINGTON, Vt. - An Arlington man is facing an animal cruelty charge after police say they found a dead dog on this property.

It happened at 2760 VT Route 313. Troopers were at Rick Thompson's home investigating a burglary involving a wood burning stove when they discovered the dog. Thompson told police the dog died from kennel cough but a vet later determined the dog had been starved to death.

Thompson, 47, is due in court next month.
