7/2022 – Tamara L. Tophoven (57) and Rebecca Tophoven (43) were arrested on four counts of the Agriculture and Markets Law of overdriving, torturing and injuring animals; failure to provide proper sustenance.

In July, New York State Police were dispatched to check on the safety and welfare of some animals that were inside a trailer  in the Town of Edmeston. Upon arrival, a trooper found three dogs and five cats living inside an abandoned trailer in squalor, with minimal ventilation, no access to water and without proper care.  The trooper contacted the Susquehanna SPCA who were able to assist in removing the animals. All of the animals were surrendered to the SPCA.
