Police: Canandaigua woman falsely claims dog is stray | Crime
A Canandaigua woman was charged after she allegedly turned in a dog to the Ontario County Humane Society that she falsely claimed was a stray, said Ontario County sheriff’s deputies.
Megan M. McLoud, 33, of 4568 Mayflower Drive, was charged with second-degree offering a false instrument for filing and obstructing/interfering with an investigation, police said.
According to deputies, an investigation revealed that McLoud’s boyfriend was attempting to adopt the dog from a friend, but was unable to keep the dog. McLoud allegedly then signed a form claiming that the dog was a stray and signed a sworn statement that also made that claim, police said.
The dog is not a stray, and has an owner that McLoud knows, deputies said.
The dog is currently at the Ontario County Humane Society.
