Scott Andrew Graham, 39, faces charges of theft, mistreatment of animals, and two counts of cruelty to animals, according to Mesa police Sgt. Anthony Landato.
A Mesa city spokesman told ABC15 that three mutilated cats were found against a wall behind a fast food restaurant near Alma School and Guadalupe roads.
In a Tuesday news release, Landato said that on August 8, surveillance video captured a suspect taking a cat from the roof of a vehicle outside a home in the same neighborhood, placing the cat in a vehicle and driving away.
The cat was found several days later behind a strip mall, dead and mutilated
