Pocono Mountain Regional police arrested Richard and Geraldine Bailey of Pocono Summit on charges of abandonment of animals under the Commonwealth Dog Law.
Police said the charges relate to the recovery of two stray dogs on July 26-27 in the Long Pond area.
Police said at 6:30 a.m. July 26, police recovered a stray male dog on Summit View Lane, and on the next day they found a stray female dog in the same area. The dogs were the same breed and color and neither was wearing identification, police said.
