Colonel Ann C. Assumpico, Superintendent of the Rhode Island State Police and Director of the Department of Public Safety, announces that State Police K-9 Ruby was found safe at approximately 1:30 a.m. today.
Ruby was located not far from where she wandered off near Ives Road and Goddard State Park on the Warwick and East Greenwich town line. A resident in that neighborhood found her in the yard and notified State Police. She has been reunited with her handler, Trooper Daniel O'Neil, a member of the Rhode Island State Police K-9 Unit.
Colonel Assumpico also would like to thank the Warwick and East Greenwich animal control officers, local police and many volunteers who assisted in the search for Ruby.
