ARRESTS MADE IN CONNECTION WITH ANIMAL CRUELTY VIDEOS

ALEXANDER, AR – On Sunday, February 3rd, Saline County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) deputies responded to the 3600 block of Centark Circle for a report of animal cruelty.  There, they met with Bryant Police Department officers to make contact with the suspects; who were depicted in videos on Facebook in which they were injuring a cat and a dog. 

After speaking with the suspects, Mr. Marlin Sims (18) and Ms. Katherine Farmer (31), both of Alexander, deputies determined that they were the two that had injured the animals in the video.  Both Mr. Sims and Ms. Farmer were charged with Cruelty to Animals, an unclassified misdemeanor.

SCSO deputies seized two cats and a dog from the home and have taken them to a local animal care facility.
