Loose pit bull leads to charges against owner

From The Times Leader

State police at Hazleton said they charged a dog owner after his pit bull was running at large.
State police said Luis Angel Perlasa-Quiniones, 54, of Winters Avenue, was charged with forgery, identity theft, false identification and not having a license or proof of rabies shots for a pit bull.
State police said a neighbor reported the pit bull running free Sunday night, and when they went to the owner’s home, they were provided with a false name. Police learned Perlasa-Quiniones was wanted since 1989 after previously being deported by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Police said the dog did not have a license or proof of rabies vaccination. Police said Perlasa-Quiniones was taken to the county prison, where he was arraigned and is held on $50,000 straight bail.
