MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- The Jackson County sheriff's office says a Medford-area man killed his girlfriend's dog and went on a burglary spree in his neighborhood.

Deputies responded Wednesday after the 22-year-old was reported to be passed out drunk in his yard in the White City community.

They found blood inside the home, which they determined came from his girlfriend's 6-month-old beagle, killed earlier in the day.

The Mail Tribune reports (http://is.gd/C5F4uU ) deputies also discovered the man had spent the day breaking into homes in the neighborhood, stealing wallets and small electronics.

He's jailed on burglary and animal cruelty charges.
