Charges: Misdemeanor, Felony CTA, Felony Non-CTA Disposition: Alleged
Alleged: Mike Chilinski
Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputies arrested a Jefferson City man Wednesday morning on several felony drug citations and animal cruelty charges.
Deputies found more than 160 Malamute dogs with little to no water and their kennels full of feces. During their search, deputies also found a marijuana operation with more than 200 plants.
Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies were called to Mike Chilinski's residence on Malamute Way, Jefferson City in September for a report of animal neglect. The sheriff's department had received reports of animal cruelty there in previous years, but during the most recent, a man reported that he and his wife went to Chilinski's residence to purchase a puppy.
The man reported that he was "horrified by the conditions the dogs were living in, " according to court documents.
