A suspect in the killing of a pet turtle was apprehended Tuesday in Baltimore after authorities sought the public’s help to find him.

On Monday, Baltimore County police said they were searching for Michael Kennard Jones, 23, of Baltimore, who was wanted on charges of first-degree burglary and aggravated cruelty to kill an animal after he allegedly impaled a pet turtle named Donatella with a knife-sharpener during a burglary last month in Parkville, Md.

He was also wanted in connection with an unrelated home invasion involving a gun, police said.

On Tuesday morning, someone spotted Jones walking in the 1300 block of North Milton Street in Baltimore and called police, leading to his arrest, Baltimore County police said in a statement.

Another man, 24-year-old Calvin Krasheen Fogg of Baltimore, was arrested Feb. 17 in connection with the Parkville burglary.
