A Connecticut woman was arrested Tuesday after police discovered crates of dogs' remains inside her home in November.
Fairfield police responded to Heidi Lueders’ home on Nov. 14 after a report of animal cruelty, the Greenwich Free Press reported. Police discovered the remains while conducting a search warrant.
The dogs had been neglected inside their crates and all that remained were the canines’ skeletons, the newspaper reported. The woman’s landlady discovered the remains.
A warrant for Leuders’ arrest was issued on Nov. 29 and authorities at the time were determining the terms of Lueders’ surrender, WFSB-TV reported.
Leuders, who lives in New Canaan, turned herself into Fairfield police Tuesday.
She was charged with five counts of animal cruelty and first-degree criminal damage to her landlord’s property. She was released from jail after posting $50,000 bond.
