GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) – A Florida woman accused of drowning a puppy at a Nebraska airport has been arrested on a Florida theft warrant.

Hastings television station KHAS reports (http://bit.ly/1yTisg3 ) that Cynthia Anderson was rearrested Thursday after she’d posted bond to leave the Hall County Jail. She’s been held there on a felony Nebraska charge of animal neglect.  Attempts to reach her attorney on Friday were unsuccessful.

The 56-year-old Anderson, who is from Edgewater, Florida, on Jan. 23 was barred from boarding a flight at the Central Nebraska Regional Airport in Grand Island because the puppy was so young and not properly contained.

Authorities say Anderson then was seen entering a bathroom. Another woman soon reported finding a dead Doberman puppy in a toilet.
