Animal Rescue Operator Arrested for Grand Theft
MARION COUNTY---The operator of an animal rescue group who authorities believe is connected with the disappearance of two boston terriers from their home in Citra two weeks ago has been arrested.
Marion County Sheriff's deputies arrested Gail Leichliter for grand theft. She is the president of Animal People, Inc. of Fort McCoy.
Detectives say her version of events in how the dogs ended up in the possession of Phoenix Animal Rescue and West End Animal Hospital did not match their evidence.
Leichliter is also on the board of Phoenix Animal Rescue, where the dogs were found days after they disappeared.
She posted her $2,000 bond Saturday afternoon and is out of jail.
