FONTANA, Calif. (AP) - Police have raided a California home they say was the center of an illegal cockfighting operation.

The San Bernadino Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1SUdfQk ) that an anonymous tip from Minnesota led officers to the Fontana home where they found 30 roosters. According to a police news release, many of the birds were sick and injured.

The release says dead roosters were also found with fresh wounds consistent with cockfighting.

Police arrested a 21-year-old man on suspicion of animal cruelty. Officer Jamie Simmons said in the news release that the man had a Craigslist ad selling fighting roosters.
