“Defendant Jared Foster was sentenced Nov. 21 to three years of formal probation and was ordered to complete a residential treatment program for a minimum of six months,” according to Shiara Davila-Morales, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

“Additionally, Judge David Gelfound ordered the defendant to not own, use, possess maintain animals,” stated Davila-Morales.

Foster served 66 actual days in county jail, so with good time work time that totaled 132, according to Sheriff’s Department records.

If convicted, Foster would have faced a maximum of five years in jail for two felony animal cruelty charges, Bailey said.

Deputies responded to reports of Foster allegedly acting “bizarre” back in June, when they found a dead animal in the backyard and Foster acting irrationally and aggressively, according to Sheriff’s Station officials.

Foster’s brother is the one who called the Sheriff’s Station.

When deputies arrived, they discovered a dead dog in the backyard that had been set on fire.  The deputies were able to talk the suspect into coming out of the house and giving up without incident.

During their subsequent investigation, Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies found a cat in the house that had been killed with some type of sharp object.

Shortly thereafter, deputies discovered that the suspect had made a spear out of broomstick and a large kitchen knife, by taping the two together.

Deputies believed he used the spear and possibly an arrow to kill the cat and apparently the dog, as well, and that he set the animals on fire.

The suspect lived at the home with his parents and his adult brother. However, the suspect’s parents were out of town during this incident.

After the deputies’ investigation, Foster then was arrested and booked at Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station on animal cruelty charges.

Foster did not show up to his initial hearing, and a $60,000 warrant was put out for his arrest.

Foster was taken into custody by AMTRAK Police, according to Sheriff’s Department arrest records, after officials discovered he had an outstanding warrant.
