TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. (WSAV) — Police arrested a woman Tuesday on animal cruelty charges after police say she threw an injured puppy into the ocean on Tybee Island.

The Tybee Island Police Department (TIPD) says Candy Marban faces a felony charge of aggravated cruelty to animals after she threw the puppy into the ocean on Sept. 12.

At the time, she told police she didn’t have money to take it to a veterinarian.

She was cited and police transported the dog to Savannah where its injuries were determined too severe, so the dog had to be euthanized.
