- Arizona, USA -
The Phoenix Police Department arrested 35-years-old DANDREA A. PRICE and her brother, 45-years-old BARRY LEMORE KEE on fifty-six (56) animal cruelty charges.
According to a news release by Phoenix Police, on November 16, 2023, police were in the area of 7th Street and Mountain View Road, just west of Cave Creek Road, in reference to a stolen vehicle report. Officers started chasing the suspects on foot and establishing a perimeter.
At one point, while looking for the suspects, officers looked into the backyard of a local residence and they saw multiple dogs chained up.
Police said all the dogs appeared to be extremely malnourished and were in bad living conditions.
Humane Society responded to the scene and removed a total of eight dogs who were in need of “immediate medical attention”, said police.
In a reel published on the Phoenix Police Department Facebook page, officers can be seen giving the Voiceless Victims fresh water and an officer can be heard saying: “No food, no water. I can’t believe this counts as shelter.”
The following day, police arrested PRICE and KEE and both were booked into the Maricopa County Jail. Online records show the siblings are no longer in custody.
