WHITE COUNTY, AR (KAIT)- A woman is arrested again for animal cruelty.

According to Corporal Steve Hernandez with the White County Sheriff's Department, deputies were called to the home of Lisa Burnett, 23, in the Searcy area on August 27th. Hernandez said deputies received a tip that Burnett was possibly running a "puppy mill" at her residence.

When deputies arrived at Burnett's home, they found several small dogs, many with mange.

Hernandez said when deputies visited Burnett's home on August 28th they determined that the conditions for the dogs were not improving. Deputies then determined that they need to take the dogs in order to get them proper treatment.

When officers returned 24 hours later on August 29th, they found that all of the dogs and cages and Burnett were missing.

Burnett has been charged with 25 counts of animal cruelty, class A misdemeanor.

Hernandez says that Burnett was charged with the same crime in 2008. She was convicted of the same crime in 2009.
