Accused animal hoarder a no-show in court; warrant issued
A warrant has been issued for a woman who's wanted on animal cruelty and false imprisonment charges.
Mary Lou Petrucci did not show up for a scheduled court appearance Tuesday, officials said.
Petrucci held a 72-year-old man captive inside her home on Mineral Spring Road in Reading last year, authorities said.
Petrucci also stands accused of hoarding dozens of animals in the home.
