Gaston man charged with starving 2 pit bulls

A Gaston County man is accused of leaving two pit bulls to starve in an abandoned house.
Donald Eric Grice, 51, whose last known address was on Old N.C. 27 in Mount Holly, allegedly left a black-and-white male and a black-and-white female pit bull at his Mount Holly home after moving away in December 2008.
The dogs were emaciated and had no food and inadequate shelter, Gaston County Animal Control Officer Heather Mitchell wrote in an arrest warrant affidavit.
Warrants for Grice's arrest were issued Dec.16, 2008, and Stanley police took him into custody Friday. Arrest documents did not state where Grice currently lives.
Grice was charged with two counts each of misdemeanor cruelty to animals, failure to display license tag, failure to purchase county license and failure to vaccinate. He was released on a $5,000 unsecured bond.
