TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Investigators say a man who tried to abandon six puppies by zipping them inside a suitcase and leaving it outside an Ohio business was charged after authorities found he'd left the luggage tag with his contact information attached.

A Toledo Area Humane Society officer filed two counts of abandonment Tuesday against the Toledo man. He's accused of leaving the canvas bag of puppies and their mother next to a trash bin behind a city business. Authorities say he was moving and had tried to sell the puppies

The Blade newspaper reports the Lucas County Dog Warden's office on April 4 picked up the bag of six puppies and their mother, an English bulldog mix.

Passers-by had found the bag and released the animals to wait for the warden's office.
