Authorities in eastern South Dakota have arrested a Rapid City man convicted of neglecting horses.
Donald Harwood and his wife, Terry Harwood, were sentenced Oct. 9 at a hearing they didn't attend.
Warrants were issued for their arrest and on Wednesday Donald Harwood was found at a farm near Canistota.
He's being held at the jail in Sioux Falls.
The Pennington County Sheriff's Office seized 69 horses in January 2013 on the leased Rapid Valley property of the Harwoods. Many of the animals had not been fed or given water.
A jury in August convicted the Harwoods on nine counts each of inhumane treatment of an animal. He got five years in prison and she received a one-year jail sentence.
