Davey Mundie was released on bond Monday, January 3rd. The 27-year-old was arrested the 1st of January after police responded to complaints of dog-fighting and betting at Mundie's home on Pea Ridge St., just off of Garth Road near Crozet.

When police arrived they found what they described as a makeshift arena behind Mundie's house and five pit bulls, four adults and one puppy. Police say the animals were badly injured.

Police arrested Mundie then transported the animals to the Emergency Veterinarians office. They were later taken to the Albemarle County SPCA, where they are still recovering.

Mundie has been charged with felony organized dog fighting and animal neglect, a misdemeanor.

He is expected back in court February 24; the dogs are being held as evidence and will remain at the SPCA.
