GLOVERSVILLE - A homeless woman was arrested Thursday for stealing an ATM card and abandoning five cats at her previous residence, city police said.
Hope M. Litchfield, 30, was arrested at the Montgomery County Jail on an outstanding arrest warrant for the previous charge of cruelty to animals and fourth-degree grand larceny in an unrelated case.
Police said an investigation revealed Litchfield stole an ATM card.
Capt. John Sira said Litchfield abandoned five of her cats at her previous home on Washington Street.
He said the Department of Social Services went to do a home visit and found the cats at the property were emaciated and had a variety of medical issues.
She was arraigned in City Court and sent to the Fulton County Jail on $2,500 cash bail.
