On Monday, April 8, the Woodbridge Police Department arrested local Animal Control Officer Karen Lombardi on an animal cruelty charge.
Lombardi, age 59, voluntarily surrendered herself at the Woodbridge Police Department this morning at which time she was arrested on an outstanding arrest warrant charging her with one count of cruelty to animals.
Her arrest stems from the investigation into an incident which allegedly occurred in November 2012 at the Woodbridge Animal Control facility.
Animal Control Officer Lombardi was released on a promise to appear in New Haven Superior Court on April 19. She is continuing on her job, according to Police spokesman Sgt. Frank Cappiello.
Police say no additional information will be released at this time.
