RIVERSIDE, R.I (WLNE) – Following the upsetting discovery of nails inside of hot dogs in a Newport neighborhood, The RISPCA is hoping for information that will lead to an arrest.

The RISPA is offering a $1000 reward for any information that would lead to a conviction of the person responsible.

The hot dogs were found spread 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.,” said RISPCA President, Joe Warzycha.
