A Sandusky woman might be charged with animal cruelty after a dead dog was discovered in her former residence by her ex-landlord.
Police responded to a call at about 11:16 a.m. Tuesday to the apartment in the 1300 block Camp St.
Police found a 30-year-old woman picking up bags at her former residence after being evicted. The woman was advised by police an animal cruelty complaint has been initiated with the Erie County Dog Warden. She was also told to stay away from the property or she would be charged with for criminal trespassing.
According to the report, the landlord entered the residence to take pictures of damage and property left behind after the eviction. That's when she discovered a dead dog in the apartment. The animal appeared to have starved to death with no food or water in the room where the animal was found.
An ID from the dog revealed the owner as the 30-year-old woman. Dogs were not even allowed at the apartment, the landlord said.
