A northwest Georgia woman was arrested Saturday, five months after police confirmed two dogs died in her home, authorities said.
Police in Cedartown discovered that Brittney Nicole Terry had a warrant out for her arrest from Floyd County on an aggravated animal cruelty charge after they arrested her Saturday, authorities said.
The 31-year-old was arrested at an Aaron’s Rents location after police responded to a call about a public disturbance, Cedartown police told AJC.com. Officials said Terry lied about her identity when she was questioned. When she was correctly identified, the warrant was discovered.
In February, police found three dogs that were severely thin and suffering from starvation in Terry’s residence, Floyd County sheriff’s spokesman James Cromer told AJC.com. Several days later, two of the dogs died.
Floyd County deputies said Terry told them she was aware she was negligent because she did not have enough money to feed the dogs.
Terry was transferred to the Floyd County jail, where she is being held on a $11,200 bond.
