City seeks charges, investigates drugs at animal shelter


Boulder City police say they’re investigating the drugs used at the shelter and have formally filed for charges against the former animal control supervisor accused of improperly euthanizing more than 100 animals.  

Mary Jo Frazier has been accused of violating the city code requiring a five-day waiting period and veterinarian review before an animal is killed.  She couldn’t be reached for comment. 

The Clark County District Attorney’s office said its screening team is reviewing the case submitted Thursday by the city before a decision is made to prosecute.  City officials couldn’t immediately be reached for comment Friday.

This week, it released a letter to the district attorney dated Dec. 10 that indicated police would also investigate “potential chain of custody issues associated with pharmaceuticals used at the animal shelter.”
