Brian Anthony CheekSante Fe, TX — A Sante Fe couple were taken into police custody Friday after police raided their home and found a bunch of drugs and stuff. That’s not what landed them here on the DD, though… it was the bodies of nearly two dozen tortured cats that earned them their spot.

Brian Cheek and his wife, Veronica Springer, were apparently the target of a somewhat lengthy narcotics investigation. When police finally raided Friday, a search of the couple’s home revealed roughly 9 grams of crystal meth, a scale and packaging materials. In addition to the narcotics, a stolen ATV valued at about $14,000 was recovered.

In addition to the drugs, police reportedly found about 20 dead cats, ranging from kittens to adults, on the property. Each and every one had apparently been tortured. Investigators stated that there was evidence of blunt force trauma, disemboweling, strangulation, and burning. One of the dead cats was discovered in a box in the bed of Cheek’s truck.

Remains of several of the cats were picked up by Galveston County Sheriff’s Office Animal Cruelty investigators and will be examined by necropsy. Police have declined to provide additional information about the animals, such as evidence of tags or other signs of ownership.

Cheek, who was apparently already on felony probation, has been charged with manufacture/delivery of controlled substances. He’s been ordered held on a $300,000 bond. Additional charges of animal cruelty are expected in the near future.

Springer has been charged with possession of controlled substances and is being held on $20,000 bond.
