County: Cape May

Disposition: Alleged

Alleged: Nick Jones

Middle Township police charged borough resident with six offenses of animal cruelty.

According to Capt. John Edwards, Nick Jones, 31, was served with summonses for allegedly poisoning his neighbor's pit bulls.

Goo Boo, a two-year-old pit bull died Jan. 9 of this year after being poisoned. His owner, Duane Pitt, told the Herald that Goo Boo, along with a mixed breed dog, Cain, had been fed drug-laced sausage with Revlimid, medication used to treat a kind of blood disorder, which was tossed onto Pitt's property.

In a January interview with the Herald, Edwards stated someone had thrown a piece of sausage with pills in it onto Pitt's George Street property. Cain ate half the sausage. Pitt was able to see pills in the remaining half and was able to induce vomiting in Cain. The remaining half of the sausage was given to police.

Goo Boo, however, was not so lucky. Rushed to a local veterinarian, the pooch succumbed to the effects of the drugs.

Jones was served with the complaints Thur., Feb. 23. A hearing will be held in Middle Township Municipal Court at a later date.
