A 15-year-old Redlands boy was arrested Thursday on suspicion of beating to death his dog with a stolen flagpole while allegedly under the influence of magic mushrooms or psilocybin, police said.
Frankie the dog died at the scene. The suspect stole the flagpole from a neighbor’s home, Carl Baker, city spokesman, said.
Police received multiple calls at 3:58 a.m. about a naked teen, covered in blood, running in the 1000 block of Ardmore Circle, Baker said.
“The callers told police that they had seen the juvenile beating a dog with a flagpole,” Baker said.
Officers spotted the teen running toward his home and detained him.
“Inside the home they located a small white dog that had been beaten to death and the flagpole,” Baker said.
Police determined the teen was under the influence of a hallucinogenic drug. Officers arrested him on suspicion of animal cruelty, Baker said. He was taken to a hospital where he was evaluated. Police then took him to juvenile hall.Related Articles

They included a woman twice the alcohol limit who had a ten-month-old baby in her car.
One driver was swigging lager from a can.
Another was arrested twice in two days for impaired driving and had taken cocaine.
Lancashire Police said: “It goes without saying that those arrested are the lucky ones — because they weren’t killed, seriously injured or left responsible for an innocent bystander being killed or injured.”
Anyone who causes a death while drink or drug driving faces up to 14 years in jail.
Being caught over the limit risks up to six months in jail.
Police and Crime Commissioner Andrew Snowden added: “The life-changing impacts of drink or drug-driving are simply not worth getting behind the wheel.
“This intensification at Christmas builds on our proactive work to tackle this type of reckless behaviour all year round.”Most read in MotorsMOVING ON GMA’s Amy ‘moves out of $5.2M marital home’ just days after ‘affair’ revealedHALT HER My boss said my outfit was inappropriate but I look amazing in my halterneck topNEW THEORY Delphi murders cop shares eerie theory on bullet found between girls' bodiesPRAYERS FOR AL Today’s Al Roker’s wife prays for her husband after concerning health update 2Police have warned drivers not to get behind the wheel after having a drinkCredit: Getty Topics
