Charges filed in Prentiss County dog fighting probe

BOONEVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Nineteen people are facing dog fighting charges.

Besides the 19 arrests, Sheriff Randy Tolar says deputies -- during a weekend raid -- seized $10,000 in cash, a firearm, equipment related to dog fighting and several vehicles.

The case stems from an investigation into dog fighting in the Hills Chapel area of Prentiss County.

Authorities say four pit bulls were removed from the property and were being held as evidence.
