A court visitor at the Gwinnett County jail was arrested and jailed after her dog was discovered dead inside of her hot car on Wednesday evening. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, it was in the 80s on the day that 46-year-old Connie Wright Gomez decided to leave her Rottweiler, Rambo, inside of the car while she spent five hours at the jail.
The horrific discovery
A deputy went to check on Rambo after Gomez was overheard mentioning that she left her dog in the car. By the time that someone found Rambo, it was too late – he was dead. Gomez had only left the windows cracked an inch and Rambo was inside of the parked car for five agonizing hours.
Rambo’s death resulted in Gomez being arrested and jailed – she is being held on a $16,700 bond. Gwinnett County Sheriff Butch Conway commented on the horrific situation, “I hope this poor dog’s horrific death reminds pet owners to make responsible choices for their pets.”
