RSPCA officers requested assistance from police on October 4th as they attended a house thought to have stolen cats inside.
Around 20 cats were discovered in the property, a large proportion of which have been seized by officers as evidence and are currently in the care of RSPCA.
A woman at the property was spoken to by officers and a safeguarding assessment will be made due to some concerns which were observed while officers were in the property.
Enquiries are on-going and officers are working with the RSPCA to reunite any cats with their rightful owners.
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
