Authorities have arrested a 31-year-old woman in connection with the theft of nearly $20,000 in pet and livestock medication and supplies last week from Cheney Animal Clinic, according to the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office.

Amanda Dawn Shock, of Cheney, was booked into Sedgwick County Jail at 3:52 a.m. Sunday on suspicion of burglary and possession of stolen property, records show. Authorities apprehended the 31-year-old Saturday at a Wichita motel, 8401 W. Kellogg, where some of the medications and vaccines were recovered, Lt. David Mattingly said; among them were a solution used in euthanasia procedures and ketamine, an anesthetic sought after by meth users.

Other drugs stolen during the April 22 or 23 burglary were found at a residence in Kingman County, he said.

The theft remains under investigation. As of Wednesday, formal charges had not been presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office, Mattingly said.
