County: Mahoning

Charges: Misdemeanor
Disposition: Convicted
Case Images: 13 files available

Defendant/Suspect: Steven S. Croley

Case Updates: 5 update(s) available

The man who operated High Caliber K-9 at his home, where seven dead and eight starving dogs were found this week, was arraigned today in municipal court.

Judge Robert A. Douglas Jr. set bond at $20,000 for Steven S. Croley, 37, of 1516 Coitsville-Hubbard Road, allowing 10 percent to be paid. He will be back in court Nov. 13 for a pretrial hearing.

As a condition of bond, Croley is not allowed to own or harbor any animals. Although originally arrested on 19 counts of animal cruelty, Croley was arraigned on only four counts, plus one count each of noxious odors and exterior property violation.

City Prosecutor Jay Macejko was not immediately available to comment on the charges.

On Wednesday, Animal Charity humane agents found seven dead and eight malnourished dogs in the backyard kennel area of Croley's business. They also found four dogs in the house. The 12 live dogs were taken to Animal Charity on South Avenue.

Croley told a humane agent that he couldn't afford to feed the dogs. He claimed ownership of 16 dogs, telling police the other three were boarded.

He was picked up last night for violating his probation.


The former owner of a Youngstown kennel, convicted of two counts of animal cruelty, was arraigned today for violating the terms of his probation.

Steven S. Croley was charged with probation violation for having three dogs at his Austintown home. He was released on his own recognizance.

Croley was picked up about 10:50 p.m. Monday by Austintown police on the warrant, issued by Youngstown police after it was determined he owned dogs. Croley was held overnight in the Mahoning County jail pending his morning arraignment.

Nineteen dogs were found starving, including eight who died, at Croley’s High Caliber K-9 kennel in Youngstown in 2008. As part of his probation, he isn’t permitted to own dogs.

So this monster Steven S Croley only got a slap on the wrist? HE should have been starved... makes me sick to think about those poor animals and their families who trusted this low life.

I hope the Nitro Foundation HB 70 Law has been passed or soon to be passed.
