A crazy woman in the magical land of Albuquerque has been arrested for the disappearance of 60 dogs after it was revealed that she was stealing the dogs and then dropping them off at animal shelters.

According to Edgewood animal control officer Mike Ring, the arrest of 59-year-old Debbie Swenerton “really cracked the case” of 60 dogs that have gone missing over the past few years.

Swenerton, who authorities say is a serial dog-napper, allegedly stole dogs for years and brought them to shelters, saying that they were strays.

Swenerton’s lawyer, Quinn Kirby, says the charges against her client are ridiculous.

“Debbie cares deeply about animals and dedicates a great deal of her time and resources to animal welfare,” she said in an email. “It is outrageous to suggest that someone like her would do something so heinous as to throw a dog out the window of a moving car. Debbie has not committed any crimes and we are confident that she will be exonerated.”

Swenerton was arrested after a woman alleged that she saw Swenerton steal two baby pit-bulls and throw them out of a moving vehicle when she began following her.

“It’s a sad story when people are calling to report their animals are missing,” said Ring. “You can hear the emotion in their voice. Some of them have children. These are family pets. It’s heart-breaking, some of these cases.”

Ring believes that Swenerton has stolen up to 60 dogs.

The question is, was Swenerton trying to protect the animals from negligent and abusive owners, or was she just trying to deprive people of their pets?

I suppose there’s nothing else to do in Albuquerque, New Mexico besides stealing dogs.
