Police in Wrentham, Massachusetts have arrested a suspect in connection with the abandonment of five kittens on Rt. 495 in town on May 30.
Alex T. Rodriguez, 32, of North Easton, was charged with five counts of cruelty to animals.
The kittens, nicknamed the "495 Five," were left in a crate and found on the side of the highway on a day in which temperatures surpassed 90 degrees. The kittens are believed to be around a month old.
Several witnesses came forward, including people who had been in the process of adopting the kittens, after seeing the Wrentham Police Facebook post regarding the incident.
Rodriguez will be summonsed to Wrentham District Court at a date to be determined. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
