Last week, police responded to a call regarding a man throwing puppies into busy morning traffic. When authorities arrived, the man was gone, but the dogs were still stuck scurrying among the cars.

Police rounded up the pups and brought them to a local animal shelter, where they were found to be shaken but not seriously hurt.

Thanks to witness observations, officers were able to capture the offender as well, arresting Ernesto Aranda Jr. for animal cruelty charges several days later.
