Sarpy man charged with animal cruelty

Barry L. Richey, 56, of Papillion, faces up to five years in prison on each of two animal cruelty charges. 

A Papillion man was charged Tuesday with two counts of intentional cruelty to two dogs, resulting in the death of one of the animals.

Barry L. Richey, 56, faces up to five years in prison on each charge. He was released from the Sarpy County Jail after posting $500 bail.

A court document filed by the Sarpy County Attorney’s Office accuses Richey of “repeated beating or mutilation” of two dogs, Mario and Bella, on April 20. The dogs were repeatedly shot by a BB gun, said Lt. Orin Orchard of the Papillion Police Department, resulting in Mario’s death.

Richey was arrested when officers went to his home to investigate a 911 hang-up call, Orchard said. A disturbance that occurred prior to the arrival of the officers resulted in another man being ticketed for third-degree assault of Richey, Orchard said.

A home phone listed for Richey went unanswered Tuesday and his attorney, James Schaefer, was unavailable for comment.
