A Buffalo man has been arrested, after being accused of being a dog-fighting ringleader and drug dealer.
Douglas Williams was arrested during a traffic stop in Clarence on Friday, according to WGRZ. Police seized two American Pit Bull terriers, who were in the vehicle with Williams. Police allege that the dogs were going to be used for dog-fighting.
On Friday afternoon, the SWAT Team searched a home on Bailey Avenue. They rescued five dogs from the home, which they say were abused. The rescued dogs were placed at the SPCA of Erie County. In addition to the animals, SWAT officers found a loaded handgun and drugs, including what they believe to be cocaine and fentanyl.
