Authorities raided a North Philadelphia house believed to be involved in dogfighting and found 11 dogs Friday afternoon - and nearly 60 possibly stolen bicycles in the basement.
Officers from the Pennsylvania SPCA rescued 11 pit bulls, including one puppy, from a house in the 2200 block of West Lehigh Avenue, said PSPCA spokeswoman Wendy A. Marano.
One man was arrested and another person was being sought, Marano said. The agency received a tip from an informant and then conducted surveillance on the property before the raid.
Humane law officers recovered a treadmill used to train fighting dogs and other paraphernalia, including injectable drugs typically used in dogfighting, Marano said. A computer and paperwork also were seized.
