Yesterday my Animal Crimes Unit arrested 56yo James Allen Darland of Mount Vernon Washington, for bestiality.Full story and undercover video here.
Darland made contact with one of my undercover detective's posing as a farmer/ owner of several animals in the Wickenburg area. Darland requested to spend days on the farmer’s property solely for the purpose of having sex with the various animals provided including miniature horses, dogs and goats.
Darland admitted to detectives on emails and in later phone calls that the self-described married man has been having sex with his neighbor’s horse, dogs and sheep in the state of Washington for some time.
Darland also stated he just retired from UPS after working there for over 23 years and when delivering packages for the company, would often have sex with customers’ dogs while they were absent from the residence while on his route. He also spoke of stray dogs that he would find on his route which he captured to use for sexual gratification.
The suspect personally met up with my undercover detectives today at a location near Wickenburg where he talked in detail about what sex acts he had recently committed with his own dog and what he planned to do with an unneutered male dog the detectives brought to the scene. Shortly after he regaled the detective of stories about his delivery route days where he unabashedly engaged in sex with customer’s pets, detectives quickly arrested him.
We clearly confirmed his intentions to commit this crime by statements, recorded phone calls and videos, e-mails and actions witnessed by my detective, leaving no doubt in his mind that Darland fully intended to carry out his perversion by committing the crime of bestiality.
Darland was booked on Conspiracy to Commit Bestiality (Class 6 Felony) and placed in the 4th Avenue Jail. A search was executed for Darland’s dog. His dog was seized in the course of the investigation and transported by Animal Crimes Detectives to the Arizona Humane Society for evaluation to determine whether the animal had been sexually abused.
I wonder if this guy was involved in something even more ghastly than this. Its said that at any one time there are at least 100 mass murders on the streets of America that have gone undetected/arrested.
