Police say a man suffering from a mental health crisis killed his dog and cat at his home on Southeast Hanover Street in Hillsboro.

They found evidence to charge Michael Klein, 37, with aggravated animal abuse.

Authorities got a search warrant after a neighbor called in the tip.

The Washington County Tactical Negotiations Team and Crisis Negotiations Unit made entry and arrested Klein.
