RISPCA Increases Reward for Information on Nails in Hotdogs

RICHMOND, R.I (WLNE) – The RISPCA has now increased the reward for information leading to the conviction of the person who put nails in hotdogs in a Newport neighborhood.

What was previously a $1000 reward, has been increased to $3,1000 thanks to donations received from concerned citizens.

The hot dogs were spread found on Thurston Avenue, which is near a dog park.

“Having investigated many cases like this in the past, I know offering a reward can often
encourage someone to come forward with helpful information. It’s incompressible how someone
could commit such a malicious act and hopefully, this increase to the reward will help bring this
person to justice”, says Rhode Island SPCA President, Joe Warzycha.

Anybody with information is asked to contact Newport Police Detectives.
