Essex/Bury St Edmunds: Teenager to face court over allegations he threw a dog out of a speeding car on A12
Two teenagers will appear in court on theft and animal cruelty charges after allegations a dog was thrown out of a speeding car on the A12.
A 16-year-old boy from Wickford will appear charged with theft and causing unnecessary suffering to an animal. An 18-year-old man from Pitsea will appear in court charged with theft.
The boys were arrested following an incident near Great Braxted on February 10, where a female Springer Spaniel was seen to come out of a car window.
The dog was recovered by police with minor injuries. She was micro-chipped and her owner was found to be from Bury St Edmunds.
The case will go before Chelmsford Magistrates Court on June 5.
