Police in Tampa, Fla., were flagged down by a group of residents who were appalled by a neighbor they allegedly saw in a sex act with a pit bull in his yard.

The neighbors told the cops on Wednesday that Bernard Marsonek, 57, ignored repeated requests to stop the alleged mistreatment of the canine, TBO.com reported.

By the time officers arrived at his home, Marsonek was inside.

During a search of his home, police found a gun and ammunition, which resulted in additional charges because Marsonek had previous unidentified felony convictions, TV station WPTV reported.

Marsonek was arrested on felony charges of aggravated animal cruelty, two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm, as well a single count of sexual activity involving animals, a misdemeanor.

He was released Wednesday on a $17,500 bond while the allegations are investigated further, MyFoxTampaBay.com reported.

Officials from Hillsborough County Animal Services took custody of eight pit bulls that were found in Marsonek's home during the initial search, MySuncoast.com reported.
