Officers say the kittens are safe and recovering at the Arizona Humane Society.

It's unclear at this time if anyone will face charges in connection with the incident.

And, Phoenix police weren't the only heroes making news. Earlier Sunday morning, Phoenix firefighters and Chandler police were able to save a dog stuck in a canal in Chandler.
