Six people connected to an Arabber stable in Hollins Market were charged with animal cruelty last week, the Baltimore Sun’s Justin Fenton reports.
William Murray, who owns the stable, faces 47 counts, Fenton reports.
Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s did not immediately release details about the case.
“The State’s Attorney’s Office respects the long standing history, tradition and contributions the Arabbers have made in the Baltimore community however it is my responsibility to uphold the law.”
For Arabbers, who sell produce and other goods from horse-drawn carts, the raid was the latest in a long line of clashes with the city. City Paper, who first reported about the raid, reported in January that the arabbers dispute the charges.
The stable at South Carlton St. housed 14 horses, all of whom were impounded by the Baltimore City Health Department and taken to Days End Farm Horse Rescue in Woodbine.
