    Police in Quincy, Massachusetts, have arrested a Boston man accused of leaving a dog in a sweltering truck amid the week’s heat wave. 

    A maintenance worker at the apartments at 10 Winter St. noticed the dog in the truck around 6 a.m. Friday with some food and no water. 

    That worker sprayed the dog with some water through a cracked window and went back to work. 

    When he returned two hours later he found the dog was still inside the truck, which had reached 100 degrees.

    Police say officers have discovered hundreds of dead and injured animals, makeshift cabins, burning trash and illegal stoves on a 70-acre property in Massachusetts. (Published Wednesday, July 20, 2016)

    The worker called police, who located the owner, 28-year-old Joshua Gormley, a resident of Boston's Dorchester neighborhood, who was inside the apartment building. 

    Gormley allegedly told police he checked on the dog every two hours and left the dog with water, though the water was completely dried when police arrived. 

    The dog was freed, but was quarantined for rabies because it bit the worker after it was freed from the truck. 

    Gormley allegedly told police he gave the dog a rabies shot but didn’t have the paperwork. 

    He is facing an animal cruelty charge and will appear at court on an undecided date.
