WOODBRIDGE, Conn. (AP) - An animal control officer in Woodbridge has been charged with animal cruelty.
59-year-old Karen Lombardi turned herself in to Woodbridge police on Monday after learning that a judge signed a warrant for her arrest.
Authorities didn't release the specific allegations against Lombardi. Police say the arrest was the result of an investigation into an incident last November at the Woodbridge animal control facility.
Lombardi was released on a promise to appear in New Haven Superior Court on April 19.
A home phone listing for Lombardi was not in service Monday. It's not clear if she has a lawyer.

The cleanup has begun in some parts of Long Island while others continue to deal with flooding from heavy rain fall that began late Tuesday and intensified on Wednesday. Cars remain stranded after rain pounded the area. More than 13 inches of rain fell in Islip. The National Weather Service said the rain was the largest event on record for New York State in a 24-hour period.
