    ARLINGTON — Vermont State Police who found a dead dog in a barn during a burglary investigation say the animal had starved to death.

    Police have cited 47-year-old Rick Thompson of Arlington on an animal cruelty charge. They responded to his home on April 6 investigating a break-in involving a wood stove when they found the dog.

    Thompson said the dog had died from kennel cough. A veterinarian examined the dog and said it had starved to death.
