CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cleveland police rescued two malnourished horses Thursday morning while raiding an East Side scrap yard accused of illegally dumping tires.

Cleveland police, sheriff’s deputies and members from other city, state and federal agencies descended on CPC’s Towing and Recycling on Kinsman Road about 10 a.m.

Police used a horse trailer from their mounted unit to take the animals from the run-down business.

The horses will be treated at the Cleveland police stables. They will be paired with a rescue organization after their recovery, officials said.

Authorities were granted a search warrant after members of an environmental crimes task force noticed used tires piling up at the business, which sits on a handful of acres.

The lot is littered with tires, junk vehicles and debris.

Officials also removed two dogs from the scene. Their condition is unclear.

Police would not say if arrests would be made.

The search comprised animal control, building and housing, health department, public works, highway patrol and EPA officials.
