JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) — An eastern Tennessee man has been charged with animal cruelty after an official says six dogs were found in a trash can outside of his house.

Police in Johnson City cited 50-year-old Gary Eugene Bailey on Friday after animal control workers found a live puppy and five dead dogs in the trash can.

Animal Control Director Debbie Dobbs says that her officers responded to Bailey's house after receiving a citizen complaint.

Bailey was in the Washington County Detention Center on unrelated charges of public intoxication and violating probation when the animals were found.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Bailey.
