    Fremont police have made an arrest in a high profile burglary and animal abuse case.

    Police on Wednesday arrested 21-year-old Valdo Diaz of Oakland. Diaz is believed to be one of two men who burglarized a Fremont home in late August.

    Surveillance video shows the suspects throwing food and dog treats onto broken glass. The family's dog, Marlie, ended up cutting up her mouth and throat while eating it. The dog has since recovered.

    Police said they are still searching for the second suspect.
