Investigators Search Vick's Property

July 6, 2007

Federal agents searched Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick's Surry County home investigating a possible dogfighting operation.

Federal authorities filed court papers Friday in the U.S. District Court in Richmond outlining an alleged dogfighting operation at the house. Vick is not named in the documents but the address of the home at the center of investigation was.

Investigators finished their search around 4:30 p.m. Court papers say that dog fights have been sponsored by "Bad Newz Kennels" at the house since at least 2002. Vick claims that he rarely visited the property.

During a drug raid back in April police seized 66 dogs, including 55 pitbulls, and equipment commonly used for dog fighting. Vick has consistently said that he had no idea that the property may have been used in any criminal activity and blamed family members for taking advantage of his generosity.
