Cock Fighting Ring Suspects Released

Five suspects arrested for a cock fighting ring over the weekend have been released from the Franklin County Jail.

Their 72-hour hold is up today and Prosecuting Attorney Shawn Sant said the investigation is still ongoing and he wants to look into more law enforcement reports before officially charging the men.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Department raided the cockfighting location in Mesa Saturday night, leading to the arrest of the five men and the discovery of about a hundred roosters being trained to fight.
