A search warrant was issued and officers were able to enter the property. In the back yard detectives found a deceased canine in a latched kennel with no food or water inside. Detectives then discovered another deceased canine on the other side of the property. This canine was also in a kennel with no access to food.
Detective Link contacted the homeowner, Donald Anthony Armand, 26, of Lincolnton, NC who stated he was going through a bad separation and was staying and working in Charlotte and forgot about the dogs. The canines were collected as evidence and taken to a veterinarian for examination. The examination confirmed the animals died from starvation.
Armand was taken before a Lincoln County magistrate on March 21, 2019 and charged with two counts of felony animal cruelty. He was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $5,500 secured bond.
