ALBANY, Ga. — Two 3-month-old black-and-white kittens thrown from a pickup on the Liberty Expressway hit the highway and rolled down the embankment about 8 a.m. Friday, an Albany Police Department report stated.

The report added that the kittens were not found after a search by animal control officials and police officers. The women who were in the truck were. Warrants were sworn out for animal cruelty charges against Sandy and Lynn Murillo.

Lynn Murillo was in the Dougherty County Jail on Friday, already charged with disorderly conduct, a jail spokeswoman said. Sandy Murillo had not been booked by 6 p.m., she added.

“The initial investigation found that Sandy was driving and Lynn was in the passenger seat,” said Phyllis Banks, APD spokeswoman. “A witness stated seeing the kittens thrown from the passenger side of the truck. The case remains under investigation.”

The women’s brother, Gavino Murillo, was booked into Dougherty County Jail on an obstruction of an officer charge Friday for trying to hide his sisters’ and his location. Gavino Murillo was in jail in lieu of $1,220 bail, said a jail spokeswoman said.

“(Gavino) Murillo is being charged with obstruction because he misled officers about his whereabouts when contacted to obtain information about the truck,” Banks said.

The sisters drove a 2005 white Ford F-150 that Murillo was buying from the mother of Eric Miller, who helped police locate the sisters, the APD report stated. Miller has no connection with the animal cruelty case, the report said.

The Herald obviously needs proofreaders...but yes, I agree, spay/neuter these three. Can you imagine how they would treat children ?

I agree with throwing them from a truck and let them see how it feels. Even yet, take them and throw them across the border. It would not have taken but very little time to have gone by the Humane Society. I cringe to think how they would treat children or senior adults.
