On the late evening of Tuesday, August 30, 2022, a deputy with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop on a stolen U-Haul truck in the 3000 block of College Park in The Woodlands.
According to a press release by the sheriff’s office, inside the truck, the deputy discovered multiple injured and malnourished dogs. One of them had a horrific injury with exposed flesh on most of his/her back consistent with a chemical burn. Tennessee News identified the burnt dog as Dolo (pictured).
The poor dogs were “in kennels filled with their own urine and feces with no food or water.”
The occupants of the truck were identified as 26-years-old TIARA JOSIANNA ALSAID and 57-years-old ANTHONY GLENN JOHNSON (both pictured), from Houston.
Following an investigation, the deputy learned that the Houston Police Department has multiple cases involving ALSAID “for running a business that claims to transport dogs cross-country, but instead sells them, never delivering the dogs to their correct destinations”, stated the release.
The sheriff’s office said that the dogs found in the truck “were stolen and worth many thousands of dollars.”
HPD Detectives, the Director of the Montgomery County Animal Shelter, and a Montgomery County Constable Precinct 2 Cruelty to Animals Investigator arrived on scene to assist in the investigation.
Thankfully, the dogs were seized until their guardians could be located, and eventually reunited.
ALSAID was placed under arrest for multiple offenses including animal cruelty and theft in addition to multiple drug warrants out of various counties.
JOHNSON was arrested for possession of marijuana but animal cruelty charges could be forthcoming.
