A Westwego man is accused of stealing 825 pounds of donated pet food, according to our partners at Nola.com/The Times Picayune.

Tony Borum, 50, was booked with simple burglary following the investigation.

Borum and a second unidentified man allegedly stole the pet food from a parked car in the 300 block of Avenue A in Westwego Saturday evening. The pair made off with 550 pounds of dry dog food and 275 pounds of dry cat food, Nola.com reports.

A witness identified Borum as a suspect. Borum lived a few houses away from the parked car.
