Authorities say they found one dead dog on the property almost three weeks ago. Deputies launched an investigation that uncovered a more serious problem at the home.
40 year-old-Derrick Rascoe had a scheduled court appearance Tuesday for a slew of charges related to dog fighting and a possible dog fighting operation at a home on Sutton Acres Lane.
The Pitt County Sheriff's Office told the Daily Reflector, Rascoe surrendered 15 Pit Bulls to animal control, in which 12 of the dogs had to be euthanized.
