LAS VEGAS — Police say four men were arrested, including one who remains jailed on multiple felony animal torture charges, after authorities found an apparent cockfighting ring at a home in northeast Las Vegas.
Officer Jacinto Rivera said Monday that 43-year-old Pablo Castellano was being held at the Clark County jail on $62,000 bail pending an initial court appearance Tuesday.
Castellano is expected to have a lawyer appointed to represent him at that time.
He also faces charges alleging that he unlawfully staged a fight between animals.
Police say about 40 people scattered following when animal control officers arrived at the home early Sunday.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that 46-year-old Angel AlcalaSanchez Sr., 18-year-old Angel AlcalaSanchez Jr. and 52-year-old Erasmo Falland also were arrested.
Records did not show them jailed on Monday.
