June 9: Criminal trespass — A deputy was dispatched to the Flemington Veterinary Hospital after an employee noticed two of the gates to the property were open and unsecured. On Sunday morning, the employee went to the hospital to walk and feed the dogs; when she left, the gates were closed and secured. She returned at 8 p.m. to take care of the dogs and noticed the gates were open. Also, at one gate entrance, there was an opened hot-dog package and several broken-up hot dogs that formed a trail from the inside to the outside of the gate. Nothing else seemed out of place, according to the complainant.

The complainant told the deputy that it did not look like the neighbor was burning debris, but instead someone set his fence on fire.
