    Police in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts, arrested a man they say crashed a stolen car, broke into a home and painted a dog Saturday afternoon. 

    Officers arrested Felix Reagan following the incident. 

    They say they received a report around 2:30 p.m. of a stolen vehicle that crashed at the end of Firehouse Lane and that the suspect ran from the scene. 

    Shortly after, they responded to a home on Pinewood Lane, where the homeowner said someone broke into the home, stole items and painted their dog with purple paint. 

    A neighbor told police a male knocked on the door and asked for someone who didn't live there. They provided police a description of the suspect that led officers to believe Reagan was responsible for the incidents. 

    Reagan was arrested on June 3 for breaking and entering, vandalism and being a minor in possession of alcohol. 

    Officers located him on Webaqua Road and took him into custody. He was found with prescription pills, a driver's license and credit card stolen from the home. He also had purple paint on him.
