ORLANDO, Fla. —

A man who is accused of a string of burglaries in College Park was given no bond during his first appearance in front of a judge Saturday morning.

Investigators said they believe 22-year-old Leonardo Turull is also responsible for brutally killing a family's dog during one of the burglaries.

WFTV was there Friday as SWAT team members were called in to remove Turull from his home so authorities could execute a search warrant.

Police believe he was involved in a string of burglaries, in which weapons and other belongings were stolen. The burglars even slaughtered a family’s pet Boxer named Wilson, authorities said.

"That's pretty low,” said neighbor Leonard Mobley. “They could've opened the door and let him loose. He would've run out."

On Friday, police served a search warrant at a home along Caywood Circle and made two arrests.

Turull was arrested and charged with three counts of burglary to a dwelling, possession of drug paraphernalia and violation of probation. He has not yet been charged in the dog’s death.

Several others at the home were handcuffed during the search.

Investigators came out with bags of evidence and electronics. At one point, an officer even dusted a flat-screen television for fingerprints.

David Morales, 18, was arrested and charged with resisting an officer without violence during the search, authorities said. 

The Orange County Sheriff's Office also arrested Rebecca Nielsen on a different burglary case in their jurisdiction.
