MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Police say two people were taken into custody for criminal charges related to animal cruelty after executing a search warrant near 24th Place and Glendale Avenue Tuesday.
Milwaukee police recovered the remains of a canine while investigating a tip that human remains were buried on the property.
People in the neighborhood feared the worst as they watched police head into a backyard with shovels, then put a black tarp up so no one could see what was going on. After hours of digging, they found the buried remains of a dog.
The house was boarded up and deemed unfit for human habitation due to debris inside the property.
Qualaundra Carr reported the miss to the city last week, writing in her complaint, "I share a one-way alley with a number of homes that leave their alley entrance filthy. Please schedule a 'walk-through' of this alley. It's gotten worse."
There were crowds watching this play out Tuesday, including community activists. One of them urged people -- if you see something not right on your block, tell someone.
