CHICAGO — A 60-year-old Elgin man was arrested and charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty Wednesday after police found an estimated 60 dead cats in a van in his backyard.

A city contractor was doing brush removal on the 200 block of Villa Street and became suspicious about potential animal cruelty, according to police. The code department alerted the police department Wednesday morning after hearing from the contractor and officers showed up at the home about 10:30 a.m.
