CHANTELL SHERI MERIWETHER arrested after her dog was found abandoned, tied to a power box

- Indiana, USA -


The Evansville Police Department arrested 45-years-old CHANTELL SHERI MERIWETHER (pictured) accused of abandoning her dog and leaving him/her tied up to a power box.


Police said they found the dog on August 8, 2023, at 11:30 a.m. outside the CK Newsome Community Center. According to police, the dog had minimal shade, had no food or water, and was barking incessantly.


The furvictim was microchipped a week prior and police were able to identify MERIWETHER as his/her guardian. Furthermore, police obtained security footage and MERIWETHER was first seen at 8:45 a.m. walking with the dog toward CK Newsome Community Center, then, footage showed MERIWETHER walking away from the building about fifteen minutes later without the dog. When the police called MERIWETHER, she refused to answer any questions. She was placed under arrest on Monday, August 28, 2023, and charged with one felony count of animal cruelty. MERIWETHER is being held in the Vanderburgh County Jail.


Court records show that MERIWETHER is expected in Vanderburgh County Superior Court on September 19, 2023, at 10:00 a.m.


Police did not disclose additional information about the Voiceless Victim who was picked up by Animal Control. I have emailed the Evansville Police Department to inquire about the furbaby and if I hear back, I will post an update.


Online court records show that MERIWETHER has a prior conviction for animal cruelty in 2018.


On an unrelated note, MERIWETHER was arrested in August 2019, after police said her grandson, under the age of three, drank alcohol while he was in her care on July 5, 2019, and the amount he consumed sent him to the hospital.

The list of her criminal records goes on and on….
