The caller said an anonymous person has called and complained about the condition of his dogs. Each complaint never led to anything. The caller said two weeks ago he found his dogs outside of his backyard on the east side of his property. He said someone opened the back gate and let them out. He put three bike locks to the gate to prevent it from happening again. Today, the caller said that sometime between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. someone ripped open the gate that leads into his patio and backyard. The damage totaled to $25. No items were stolen and the dogs were safely in the house. The caller said he would prosecute for the damage.
