NEWPORT-A female resident on Old Newport Highway, in Newport, was cited Monday, Sept. 17, for four counts of animal cruelty after officers looked through the window of her residence and saw "huge" amounts of dog feces all over the floor, Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fontes and Deputy Sheriff Chuck Evans reported.

Officers went to the residence of Tracy Shawnee Robertson, 42, at 1671 Old Newport Highway, in Newport, on three separate occasions in an attempt to reach her concerning neglected dogs, the report stated.

After officers peered through a window and saw the dog feces all over the floor and that the residence appeared abandoned, officers returned with animal control officers and entered the residence, according to the report.
