When it comes to arrests, 2017 has already seen a lot of unlikely folks in handcuffs.

TMZ reports that the latest celebs to get booked are Malcolm X‘s daughter and granddaughter, who were arrested on Wednesday after allegedly stealing a U-Haul containing a bunch of mistreated dogs. Sources say that Malikah Shabazz and her daughter, Bettih Shabazz, were in Maryland earlier this week when cops found a box in the truck containing dogs with injuries.

Police added that the dogs were “kept in inhumane conditions.” The Shabazz ladies have both been charged with seven counts of animal cruelty, vehicle theft and an additional charge of theft between $10,000 and $100,000. This isn’t the first time the women have been caught on the wrong side of the law.

Back in 2011, Malikah Shabazz was released from jail after pleading guilty to stealing the identity of an elderly family friend to run up more than $55,000 in credit card bills.
