Cockfighting match in progress as deputies make bust, officials say
According to a statement from the Sheriff's Department, an anonymous tip led deputies to the home, where they found 40 men watching a cockfighting match. Many of the them fled, but deputies arrested three men.
Deputies believe the home on Fairgrove Avenue was being used by a cockfighting ring.
Frank Hernandez, 67, of Rancho Cucamonga; Gamiz Concepcion, 64, of Pomona; and Eduardo Chaves, 63, of La Puente, were arrested on suspicion of cockfighting.
The birds were turned over to animal control.
