New Mexico: Alliance Against Animal Abuse helps Crime Stoppers arrest animal torturer and killer John Santiago

NEW MEXICO -- The Alliance Against Animal Abuse worked with Crime Stoppers in presenting a $1,000 reward for information that led to the arrest of John Santiago.

Santiago was arrested in September for Residential Burglary and Extreme Cruelty to Animals, for breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home back in July and abusing her Pomeranian, Teddy.

Police say the little dog had been burned and beaten and had to be euthanized.


Crime Stoppers and AAAA, along with another anonymous group say they worked to present the award in hopes that it would be a deterrent against possible future animal cruelty incidents.
