The woman accused of posing as a veterinarian will be facing additional charges as her Monday pretrial approaches.
Akron Police Detective Steve Null tells AkronNewsNow.com that several people have come forward since the original indictment came out against Brandi Tomko.
"Several people have come forward, reports were filed," Null said.
"As of this (Friday) morning, new charges were presented to the grand jury in reference to those new complaints."
Authorities say Tomko treated animals at the now-closed C & D Animal Hospital on Brittain Road in Akron.
Tomko is currently charged with over 30 counts of animal cruelty, identity fraud, and practicing without a license, even though she had no formal veterinary training. She allegedly drew blood, wrote prescriptions for animals and performed surgeries on them, some resulting in death.
Akron Police say she used the money from customers to support a drug habit. She has pleaded not guilty.
Null explains what could happen at Tomko's next court appearance Monday, April 30.
"I'd imagine at that time the new charges would be read to her for the arraignment on these additional charges and the judge would set a trial date at that time."
Brandi Tomko is currently a free woman after posting bond April 24.
