A Lumberton woman was arrested for putting six newborn kittens in a Dumpster after being caught on a surveillance camera, according to Lumberton Police Chief Danny Sullins.
Carolyn Foux, 67, was charged with cruelty to a non-livestock animal, a state jail felony, according to a probable cause affidavit.
After a custodian found the kittens May 25 in a Dumpster on the south side of Lumberton Primary School, officers found five of the six kittens, three of which were dead, in a plastic bag, according to the affidavit.
The sixth kitten was out of the bag but in the dumpster.
Since the incident, two other kittens died and one is alive, Sullins said.
A video camera on the back of a bus barn pointing toward the Dumpster showed the suspect placing a bag in the Dumpster, the affidavit says.
Foux turned herself in and was taken to the Hardin County Jail, Sullins said. She bonded out on the same day, June 6, according to a jail dispatcher.
Bond set on Foux was $1,000 by Hardin County Justice of the Peace Butch Cummings.
