An anonymous tip came in Dec. 29, leading officials to 4021 Cedar Grove Place in the Ellenwood area, DeKalb police Detective Jason Gagnon said. They found the dogs chained up to trees in the backyard of a home.
He said they also found treadmills, supplements and other items associated with dogfighting, including documents that appear to detail training regimens, dog performance and the dates of upcoming fights. Some of the information is written in code, which investigators are trying to crack.
