Man Charged with Animal Cruelty Skips Town Again

St. Johnsbury, Vermont - September 17, 2009
WCAX News

A man facing animal cruelty charges in Caledonia County has gone AWOL, and it's not the first time.
Forty-four-year-old William Hanson and his wife Tammy are accused of keeping 30 dogs in unsanitary conditions at their home in Sutton. Both were previously convicted on similar charges in Arkansas in a case that involved hundreds of dogs. Tammy Hanson is being held in Vermont as a fugitive from justice, but an arrest warrant is out in Arkansas for William since he failed to appear for sentencing there.

On Monday, he once again failed to appear in Caledonia County Court to answer the new charges. Officers say they visited the couple's Sutton home only to find it vacant. The Caledonia County Sheriff's Office has now issued an arrest warrant for William Hanson.

Officials say he may be operating a silver Ford Expedition with Montana registration 3C-5751G or a large tan and white motor home bearing Montana registration 3C-9341H. He may be towing a black Roadmaster trailer bearing Montana registration 3A4466. Anyone who sees Hanson or knows where he may be is asked to contact the Caledonia County Sheriffs Department at (802) 748-6666 or their local police department.
