OAK BLUFFS (CBS) – A man is accused of going on a very strange crime spree on Martha’s Vineyard over the weekend.
Oak Bluffs police say Felix Reagan committed a series of crimes that left a dog painted purple on Saturday afternoon.
It all started when officers responded to Firehouse Lane for a report of a stolen motor vehicle that crashed, with the suspect fleeing on foot.
About 5 to 10 minutes later, police were called to a Pinewood Lane house that had been broken into. A resident there said they arrived home to find a ground level window forced in – and that’s not all.
“Items were reported stolen and the victim’s dog had been painted with purple paint,” police said.
A neighbor told officers that a disheveled-looking man knocked on their door, and provided a description to police.
After a Webaqua Road resident called police to report a man looking in their window, police were able to track down Reagan and take him into custody.
They found purple paint on his pants, in addition to prescription pills, and a stolen driver’s license and credit cards.
As he was being taken to the Oak Bluffs police station, officers say Reagan tried to kick out the cruiser’s windows and kicked a police officer twice.
He is facing a number of charges, including cruelty to animals, assault and battery on a police officer, breaking and entering and destruction of property.
