A Southern Kentucky man, arrested on drug charges, and accused of keeping dogs in filthy conditions, pleaded not guilty plea this morning.
Ricky Bell was arrested Tuesday at his Pulaski County home after sheriff's deputies searched the home for drugs.
Police say in addition to meth and marijuana, officers found 23 dogs living in filth. Most of the animals were in such bad shape, they'll have to be put down.
Bell faces animal cruelty and drug charges.
