On Thursday, February 25, Saint Albans Police Department arrested 37-year-old AMANDA MARIE CASE (pictured below).
CASE was being sought by Charleston police on three animal cruelty charges.
According to Eyewitness News’ original post, a humane officer received reports on January 19, about abandoned animals at a home in the 1500 block of First Avenue in Charleston.
The officer learned that CASE had moved to Saint Albans and left one cat and two dogs behind in the Charleston home.
A police officer assisted the humane officer with this case and after a search warrant was served at the property, they found the residence in deplorable condition.
They also discovered one deceased cat and two dogs who were severely malnourished.
The house was covered in feces and urine, and there was no food or water for the furbabies.
According to the complaint, CASE said people would come by to feed the animals, but the investigation revealed otherwise.
The arrest warrant for CASE was issued on Thursday at Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
CASE is currently being held at South Central Regional Jail on a $15,000 bond or 10% cash.
