MOULTRIE, Ga. -- Police in Moultrie, Ga., say the suspect in a residential burglary apparently drowned three puppies inside the house before fleeing the scene. 
 
The victim returned home over the weekend and found evidence of a burglary and eventually stumbled upon the bodies of the puppies.

Authorities say they were drowned in a large trash can in the bathroom that had been filled with water.

Police say they have identified a person of interest but have not disclosed additional details.

Authorities say the suspect will likely be charged with criminal damage to property and three felony counts of animal cruelty.
