Man charged with aggravated animal cruelty

A Kingston man was arrested at his Erin Court residence late last week on a felony warrant charging him with aggravated cruelty to animals.

According to the warrant:

52-year-old Roger Eugene Feyerabend failed to seek veterinary care for a kitten that had a severe eye infection.

The kitten had to have its eye removed due to the infection, which a vet at Floyd County Public Animal Welfare Services said would have caused unmanageable pain and is easily prevented with medication and proper treatment.

Feyerabend is also charged with 15 counts of cruelty to animals and nine additional counts of aggravated cruelty to animals, as well as possession of methamphetamine and a probation violation.

Man charged with possession of fentanyl

A 37-year-old Rome man was arrested last week on charges of possession of a Schedule II controlled substance.

According to Floyd County Jail records:

Jeffrey Daniel McWhorter was found in possession of suspected fentanyl during the execution of a search warrant at his residence on Tyler Street.

He is also charged with possession of methamphetamine and a probation violation.
