MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) - A 27-year-old man has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for breaking into a Moorhead animal hospital to spring his unlicensed dog.
Anthony Wagoner says he didn't have the money to pay $103 in impound fees.
The Forum (http://bit.ly/LP8UKd ) reports Wagoner also was sentenced Thursday to five years in prison after pleading guilty to felony possession of a pistol. The sentences will run concurrently.
Wagoner pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary for breaking into the Fargo-Moorhead Animal Hospital on Oct. 11. Hospital staff told police Wagoner had called about the cost of freeing his dog.
Police say Wagoner admitted to the break-in after police found his Labrador retriever, Ace, at his mother's home in Crookston.
He was ordered to pay $233 to the hospital for a broken window.
