SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Police arrested a veterinarian after they searched her office in Saginaw.

On April 13, at 9 a.m., Saginaw police officers and Saginaw County Animal Control executed a search warrant at veterinarian Virginia Lei’s office at 2737 Davenport.

Leis was arrested and released pending further investigation.

Animal control received a complaint about "misconduct" and sanitary conditions at Leis' office about a week ago, Saginaw County Animal Control Director Lisa Stoffel said.

Leis' building was condemned and her practice was closed, Stoffel said.

Three animals were returned to their owners and 15 dogs belonging to Leis were seized and taken to animal control, Stoffel said. Those animals will be released to Leis.

Animal control would not go into details on the type of misconduct, but said Leis will be advised on what changes she needs to make.
