Social medium leads to arrest in Salem County

Posted: September 16, 2011

Facebook postings led to an animal cruelty investigation that culminated with the arrest of a Salem County man on a weapons charge.

The New Jersey SPCA said that what it considered to be "disturbing" postings on the site caused officials to execute a search warrant in Upper Pittsgrove Township on Tuesday night. Authorities arrested Ian Barlow.

SPCA president Rick Yocum said the group rescued five cats and discovered between 15 and 20 dead cats, neatly wrapped in plastic bags, in the freezer. - AP
