WARREN, Mich., (WXYZ) - A former Macomb County pet shop owner is set to be sentenced Tuesday morning in a case of animal cruelty.
Police raided his Greenwood Pets and Plants store in Warren last May. They originally went to the shop to collect a debt Jones owed.
Inside they found more than 100 animals living in horrible conditions. Some of them had been without food and water for days, others were crammed into cages.
Jones' friends say he's a good guy who just got overwhelmed.
