CALGARY — Manitoba RCMP have arrested an Alberta woman who is at the centre of an animal cruelty investigation.

April Irving was charged in 2015 with animal cruelty and neglect after 201 emaciated dogs were seized from a property near Milk River in southern Alberta.

Irving was charged after five dogs were found that had starved to death.

She missed a 2016 court date and officials suspected she had moved to Jamaica.

Mounties say Irving was arrested by members of the Stonewall RCMP detachment.

RCMP are working to have her transferred back to Alberta.
