TELL CITY, Ind. — An Indiana State Trooper was arrested earlier in the week for arson and insurance fraud charges, now he’s adding one more charge to the list.

Jeremy Galloway is charged with animal cruelty. Police say that two dogs were killed in the fire that Galloway is accused of setting on his own house in October.

The Tell City Fire Department were able to get the fires put out, but the house had heavy smoke and fire damage, and the outbuilding was destroyed. 

Perry County FOP President Andrew Hauser started a GoFundMe for Galloway after the fire. He told WFIE that the people who donated have been refunded.

Galloway is on administrative leave without pay.
