You should contact the police. They will/should launch an investigation. Hopefully you have proof of the crime. It’s best to do it sooner rather than later because statute of limitations may be a factor.
I wish you well.

Not many facts to work on here, also question was posted in Animal/Dog Law. But a warrant is usually something issued by a court for the arrest of another person. So I don't see how you would take out a warrant. Perhaps you meant to file a complaint against somebody?
This lady and her family bring her dogs to my home to do their business specifically in my yard even after I've asked them to stop.
answered on Jul 8, 2019
You can bring a civil action against her for nuisance and trespass.
If you haven't already done so, send a cease and desist letter or hire an attorney to do it. You can use that letter in court if she continues her behavior.

Any penalty imposed would be limited in time to the maximum time allowed under the law which for ordinances may be 60 days or 6 months. But you would need to check the city or county ordinance where you live.

It's theft so if they want to have the police find you then you are looking at a criminal charge. My advice: let the humane society know and let them handle it. If it is abuse they can step in. If not, you need to back away.
