Authorities said 24-year-old Alicia Inglish was arrested Sunday as Marion County sheriff's officers and Humane Society investigators removed more the dogs. Officers said many of the animals were housed in deplorable conditions, with little food, water fouled by garbage and cages designed for one animal containing as many as four.

Inglish was arraigned on 120 counts of animal neglect and one count of evidence tampering. The Salem Statesman Journal said Judge David Leith set Inglish's bail at $55,000 on Monday and said she's not permitted to have any contact with animals.

Her next court appearance is scheduled on Jan. 22.
