Three charged in dogfighting operation
Baltimore County Police yesterday announced the arrest of three people they say were involved in a dogfighting ring in North Point.
The charges stemmed from a November investigation into an assault, during which officers were made aware of rival drug groups in the 7500-block of Lange Street.
The two rival groups had been responsible for disorder in the neighborhood for months, police said.
After an investigation, detectives served two search warrants and dicovered three aggressive pit bulls and dogfighting paraphernalia that included weights, chains, veterinary syringes and medicines, steroids, collars and a treadmill.
Police charged three suspects in the case with possession of marijuana and cruelty to animals — Nicole Marie Caruso, 26; Romy Bolgier, 28; and Michael Ecker, 25. All were listed as living on the 7500-block of Lange Street.
