SALISBURY, Md.- The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office has arrested a Salisbury man on animal cruelty charges.

The Sheriff Office reports a deputy arrested 35-year-old Wayne L. Lashley on Sept. 22 on a warrant that was obtained in an animal cruelty case.

Authorities said that in June, representatives from Wicomico Animal Control responded to a home on the 7000 block of Jersey Road where they found two pit bulls that were on the property on chains without any water. Animal Control determined that the pit bulls had been without water for some time and the heat index was in excess of 90 degrees, the Sheriff's Office said. The dogs were seized and transported to the Humane Society.

The Sheriff's Office said further investigation by Animal Control identified the owner of the dogs as Lashley.  It was also revealed that the two pit bulls were not current on their rabies vaccination, investigators said. 

Following his arrest, Lashley was charged with animal cruelty for failing to provide proper drink and another count of animal cruelty for failing to provide veterinary care. Lashley was released by the District Court Commissioner on unsecured bond.
