A woman has been arrested twice at the Mildura pound this morning after allegedly breaking in and setting loose dozens of dogs.
Police were first called to the Mildura City Pound about 12.30am and were confronted by about 25 dogs that had been set free from their kennels.
Officers searched the pound and discovered a car with three dogs inside, and arrested a 44-year-old woman hiding in a nearby shed.
The Merbein woman was taken to Mildura Police Station where she was questioned and released while the investigation continued.
But police were called back to the pound just before 5am following reports of another break-in.
A Victoria Police spokeswoman said the 44-year-old woman was arrested in the pound again and taken to the police station, where she continues to be questioned this morning. No charges have been laid.
Police managed to catch all of the dogs and returned them to their kennels.
