A 56-year-old woman has been charged after police say they discovered that she had locked a dog in her trunk for more than 30 minutes.

Linda Scalley of Wilton was arrested Wednesday by Greenwich Police after officers were called to a report of a dog in a vehicle on Grove Street in Cos Cob, said Lt. John Slusarz.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found the vehicle with all of the windows closed and determined the dog was in the trunk. Once released, the dog was salivating heavily due to the heat and was in distress, Slusarz said.

Scalley was given a misdemeanor summons for cruelty to animals and is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 1.
