ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) — More charges have been filed against a woman arrested after last week's discovery of animals found living in poor conditions.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Department says 40-year-old Cindy Ann House of Hamilton was arrested again Wednesday to face an additional 12 counts of cruelty to animals and five felony counts of dog stealing.
Her first arrest was earlier this week only on one animal cruelty charge.
The criminal case began on March 21 when deputies showed up at her home on Center Hill Road to find approximately 100 dogs and several cats.
Sheriff Cecil Cantrell says the animals were living in deplorable conditions.
