The Baker City Police Department’s new Facebook page was created just in time to help investigators solve the mystery of who owned a Border-collie mix dog that suffered two broken legs when it was hit by a car last week.

Information was developed from Facebook that led police to Marcia Shelynn Studebaker, 30, of 2431 Campbell St. 

Studebaker was arrested at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday on charges of first-degree animal neglect, a Class A misdemeanor, and initiating a false report, a Class C misdemeanor.

She was released from jail Tuesday after posting $1,500 bail, 10 percent of the total $15,000 bail. Studebaker is scheduled to appear in Baker County Circuit Court at 1:15 p.m. Monday, Aug. 25.

Sgt. Dustin Newman said Studebaker called police at 6:24 a.m. on Aug. 4 to report that the dog’s owner had abandoned it after it was hit by a car about 6 p.m. on Aug. 3.

Newman said Studebaker originally told him that a woman was walking the 9-month-old pup down the street past Studebaker’s house on Campbell between Fifth and Sixth streets, when the dog broke loose from its leash and took off chasing a goose. The dog was subsequently hit by a car, Studebaker told Newman.
