A career criminal was recently arrested and charged for dealing drugs and dog-fighting. New York's Erie County Sheriff's Office has identified 43-year-old Douglas Williams of Buffalo as the accused drug-dealing dog fighter.
In a release, the authorities outlined what was discovered when a search warrant was executed at his residence:
ECSO SWAT Team executed a search warrant at his dwelling where five additional dogs were rescued. The dogs showed signs of severe abuse. Also recovered in the raid was a loaded 9mm handgun, cocaine, fentanyl, as well as drug paraphernalia.
DJ Granville, Chief of Narcotics and and Intelligence for the Erie County Sheriff's Office, said:
"You know exactly what you're looking at. You know there were a boatload of dog fights going on here. These poor animals are being pitted against each other. For people to take advantage of that, to bet money on that, to play their own egos on that... it's disgusting."
Williams was arrested and he is now missing after being released on bond. There is currently a $2,500 reward for information that leads to his arrest.
