HAMDEN, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – Hamden police have made an arrest in connection with an animal cruelty case dating back to July.
It was on July 2 that the Halfway Home Rescue group removed 16 cats from a home on the third floor of 13 Augur Street. Several other felines were found dead in the home. Police were notified of the incident four days later and began an investigation.
Police say Aaron Wall, 36, had moved out of the home weeks earlier, apparently leaving the cats without food or water. Wall was arrested Thursday at his place of work.
Wall faces 19 counts of animal cruelty. He’s due to be arraigned September 15 at Meriden Superior Court.
