WITTMANN, Ariz. (AP) - A Wittmann woman is accused of operating a puppy mill after the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office seized nearly 100 animals from her property.

Sheriff’s officials say 59-year-old Colleen Jolly is facing several animal cruelty charges.

They say Jolly had an animal cruelty conviction in Oregon in 1994.

It’s unclear if Jolly has a lawyer yet.

MCSO’s Animal Crimes Unit served a search warrant on Jolly’s property Wednesday morning after receiving a tip about terrible breeding conditons.

Sheriff’s officials say most of the dogs were puppies and were housed in crates and crude wooden structures at the home.

Inside each box were multiple dogs reportedly living in their own waste, some without food or water.

There were several English bulldogs, Maltese and Cockapoos among the dogs.
