Dog Poisoning Suspect Arrested In Firestone

Joseph Donald Losinski Faces Felony Charges

A man suspected of poisoning dogs in Firestone was arrested Tuesday.

According to Firestone police, Joseph Donald Losinski was arrested in connection with the death of two dogs on Aug. 8 in the 500 block of Fifth Street.

Losinski was charged with two counts of aggravated animal cruelty, a felony, police said.

The owner of two dogs had let the animals outside in the early morning and found them both dead 20 minutes later.

The Firestone Police Department obtained and executed a search warrant in late August. Investigators then developed enough probable cause to make an arrest.

“The community of Firestone paid close attention to this investigation,” said Chief of Police David Montgomery. “This investigation will continue.”
