Just after 5pm Friday afternoon, Windsor Police were called to an apartment building in the 8700 Block of Wyandotte Street East.
Several witnesses had informed police that they heard what sounded like a man yelling and a dog yelping and whimpering.
Police went to an apartment to investigate, and after speaking to a person of interest, they checked the apartment to determine whether or not there was anyone or any animal in distress.
Upon entering the apartment they quickly discovered a substantial amount of marijuana which was hanging to dry, as well as already dried marijuana in bags in plain view in the apartment.
Police also discovered what appeared to be a small 4 month-old Lab/husky mix in the bathroom.
It appeared that the dog has sustained a recent injury.
The resident, a 20 yr old male from Windsor, was arrested for Possession of a drug for the purposes of trafficking and for injuring an animal.
The humane society was contacted to remove the dog and to conduct an injury assessment on the young dog.
The type of charges police may lay in relation to the dog abuse are pending the outcome of the assessment.
