Hillsboro Police Conclude the Investigation Into Dog Investigation - 03/26/14
This media release updates a case that began on February 25, 2014 on NW Garibaldi St. whereby a Washington County Animal Control Officer responded to a dog at large case and used force on a dog that was then reported to the Hillsboro police department by Mr. Marlin Starr as an animal abuse case.

The case was assigned to Hillsboro police detectives on March 3, 2014 and the investigation began. Detectives reported the ascertainable facts of the case, and on March 13, 2014 the case was referred to the Washington County District Attorney's Office for review and charging decision.

The Hillsboro police were later notified by the District Attorney's Office that no charges would be brought in the case.

HPD Detectives completed a very through and detailed investigation into this matter and at the conclusion the facts of the case as known did not contain the necessary elements of the crime of animal abuse.
