County: York

Disposition: Alleged

Alleged: Kevin A. Accomando

A Massachusetts man has been charged with animal cruelty for allegedly locking his dog in his vehicle with the windows cracked open for more than two hours.

The temperature in the car, which was parked in partial sun at Short Sands Beach, reached 119 degrees, according to police.

Kevin A. Accomando, 34, of 49 Beal St., Winthrop, Mass., was issued a summons for animal cruelty.

Animal Control Officer Larry McAfee reached his hand into the car to open the door, according to the police report. Police gave no description of the type of dog rescued.

The incident occurred at 12:04 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 3, in the parking lot of Short Sands Beach. The meter had expired and no one was with the car. McAfee said the dog appeared to be in distress. He gave the dog a bowl of water, which the dog quickly finished, and refilled the bowl, according to the report.

Accomando showed up while officers were on scene. He has a court date of Thursday, Nov. 10, in York District Court.
