Woodbridge police have charged a woman with cruelty to animals after her dog was found dead in a hot car, police said.

Woodbridge police and Woodbridge Municipal Animal Control responded to a Lunar Drive parking lot around 4 p.m. yesterday after it was reported that a dog was left unattended in a car in 90-degree heat, police said.

Officers found a 14-month old Yorkie-Chihuahua mix in the car, with the windows rolled up.

Police said the dog’s owner, Tiffany July-Lindo, 24, of Waterbury, had left the dog in the car while she went to work inside a local business.

When July-Lindo returned to the car around an hour later, she found the dog dead.

July-Lindo is scheduled to appear in New Haven Superior Court on July 26 at 10 a.m.
