POUND, Va. (AP) - Police say several people are facing charges following a raid of a cockfighting operation in Wise County.
Police tell media outlets that local, state and federal officers executed search and arrest warrants early Saturday morning in the Pound area.
The warrants stemmed from an investigation of drug distribution, gambling, and animal cruelty due to cockfighting.
Officers seized several thousand dollars' worth of items.
Details of the raid are expected to be released later this week.
