DENVER — The Denver Police Department helped save 23 animals that were locked in a minivan last week.

Officers checked on the animals that were in the minivan in a parking lot in the 2900 block of Speer Boulevard.

They found the windows rolled up with 23 animals, including piglets, rabbits and puppies, inside the minivan.

The owner of the minivan, Steven Jones, 31, was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant out of Summit County.

The animals were taken by Animal Control officers. Officials with the Denver Municipal Animal Shelter said a rescue group took the animals a day after Jones’ arrest and returned the piglets and rabbits to their owner in Summit County.

    This guy was mistreating these animals and taking money for transporting them lord knows where, he gave me a ride once and dumped me at a truck stop – I think he did not want me to see where the animals were going, he didn’t even have a ta on his vehicle when he picked me up in Florida- ( a craigslist ride ) – plus he had a 2 year old kid in the van who he dropped off in Kentucky w-his wife
