NOTTOWAY, Va. (AP) - Officials say a Nottoway County farm is being investigated after authorities found evidence of animal cruelty.

Nottoway County Commonwealth’s Attorney Theresa J. “Terry” Royall said in a new release that the Nottoway County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant Thursday and Friday at the farm of Robin Vince.

Officials seized a total of 40 horses and 15 dogs from the farm. Deputies also recovered the remains of a dog and four horses as evidence. The animals were examined by at least two veterinarians before they were relocated from the property.

Officials say the investigation is ongoing and criminal charges will be filed by the Nottoway County Commonwealth’s Attorney after the investigation has been completed.
