Original Release (February 27, 2017 1:40 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police have obtained a warrant for the arrest of a suspect who needlessly killed a pet turtle during a burglary.

The resident returned to find her home ransacked, and her pet turtle, Donatella, dead on the floor.

The investigation determined that during the overnight hours from January 20-21, while the victim was away, two suspects entered the residence in the unit block of Barnwell Court in Parkville through an unsecured ground floor window. They stole numerous electronic devices and accessories, two television sets, gift-cards, checks, and jewelry. Before leaving, one of the suspects removed Donatella from her aquarium home, and impaled her with a knife-sharpener.

On February 17 police arrested one of the suspects, identified as Calvin Krasheen Fogg (24) of the 4400 block of Marble Hall Road, 21218.

The second suspect, believed to be the person responsible for killing Donatella, is still outstanding. He is identified as Michael Kennard Jones (23), previously known to reside in the 3200 block of McElderry Street, 21205. He is wanted on charges of 1st degree burglary, aggravated cruelty to kill an animal, and is also wanted in connection with a previous home invasion robbery with a gun.
