37 arrested in raid at Dade cockfights
Over thirty people were arrested following a raid of a suspected cockfight in Dade County, as reported by the Miami Herald. In addition to the arrests, police discovered thirty to forty live roosters in a pen at the ring and two recently killed roosters. "You could tell they had been alive recently. Fresh blood on their sides and necks,'' said Miami-Dade Sgt. George Llambes, of the organized crimes bureau. When the police arrived suspects scattered, but according to the article most were caught easily because they were retired, older men.
