WORTH CO., GA (WALB) -

The Worth County Grand Jury has decided not to indict Warwick Police Officer Thomas Frye, whose police dog, Sasha, died inside his police vehicle in September 2012.

The Grand Jury returned a "no bill" response after considering and voting on the indictment of Frye.

The Worth County group was given the option of indicting Frye with misdemeanor cruelty to animals. Evidence in the case was presented by an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

A Grand Jury is required to return a "true bill" before prosecutors can move forward with legal action against those accused.

An investigation by the GBI did reveal that the police dog died inside Frye's vehicle. Investigators believe the dog was able to open a door to the car and climb inside.

Interviews with independent witnesses also revealed that the dog's ability to open vehicle doors was common to those that knew it.

The Worth County Grand Jury concluded their meeting on September 4.
