    A Fairfield-area transient was arrested Monday on suspicion of felony animal cruelty that led to the death of a kitten, a police sergeant said.

    Keith Hebert, 22, was arrested near a convenience store in the 200 block of East Tabor Avenue around 1 p.m. Monday shortly after police learned the 4- to 5-week-old kitten died at an emergency animal hospital, Fairfield police Sgt. Matt Bloesch said.

    A good Samaritan dropped off the kitten at the animal hospital around 11:30 a.m. Monday. Witness statements and prior contacts with Hebert helped identify him as the suspect, Bloesch said.

    Bloesch would not disclose the kitten's "traumatic" injuries. He said the case has been sent to the Solano County District Attorney's Office.
