CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A reward of up to $2,100 was offered Thursday for information that leads to the arrest of whoever used pesticide-laden treats to poison three dogs in the Otay Ranch area.
One dog was found ailing after its owner let it into a backyard April 7. A second family in the same Chula Vista neighborhood found their two dogs with similar symptoms six days later, according to Chula Vista police and Crime Stoppers.
