MORRISON, Colo. (AP) -- Jefferson County sheriff's investigators and animal control officers have seized 18 horses at an animal rescue facility in Morrison.

The sheriff's office says in a news release that deputies served a search warrant Wednesday following complaints the horses were being mistreated.

The horses have been taken to another facility in Parker.

A sheriff's department spokesman says the owners could face charges including cruelty to animals.
