MARYLAND -- Alleged mistreatment of a Labrador mixed puppy led to the arrest of a 20-year-old Lonaconing man on animal cruelty charges, according to the Allegany County Sheriff's Office.
Aubrey Alan Ashley was charged Tuesday with animal cruelty causing unnecessary pain and animal cruelty failure to provide food after the sheriff's office investigated a complaint that Ashley was involved in "ongoing mistreatment of pets in the home," police said.
Deputies were provided a video recording by the residents of the complaint location that revealed the physical abuse of the puppy that was owned by Ashley.
Police said examination of the dog revealed the canine was suffering from malnutrition.
Several animals were seized from the residence at that time, police said.
Ashley was arrested at the scene during the investigation.
Ashley remained jailed Wednesday at the Allegany County Detention Center on $6,500 bond, pending a bail review hearing by a district court judge.
