An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday for a former Logansport aldermen indicted Monday in connection with the poisoning deaths of 11 dogs and a cat. The DeSoto grand jury indicted Billy Alger with 12 counts of cruelty to animals for the crime committed in April. One of the dogs was his own. The grand jury spent several hours Monday listening to testimony offered by law enforcement officials and dog owners whose pets had eaten hamburger meat filled with gopher bait. All of the poisoned dogs were pets. None of them were strays roaming the neighborhood. Alger was a suspect early in the dog poisoning investigation even while he pointed fingers at his other neighbors. He called the sheriffs office on May 5 to report that he returned home and found his Heeler had possibly been poisoned. During the course of the investigation several dogs were exhumed for testing and the poison was found in the corpses.
