Pill-laden pork chops found in Fairview

Chops reportedly intended to maim pets, police have no suspects

Fairview Police responded to an unusual call Jan. 19. Police Chief Ken Johnson said a woman reported finding pork chops in the grass alley near her home off Seventh and Halsey streets. Those pork chops were filled with pain pills and fish hooks.

While the woman told police she assumed the pork chops were meant to hurt dogs, Johnson said, “We don't know that.”

The incident was isolated, he said, and not something Johnson said he's experienced before. There have been no reports of sick or injured pets, Johnson added.

As for suspects, there are no leads so far.

“We'll have to wait for witnesses to come forward,” he said. “We have very few leads.”
