COATESVILLE, Pa. (AP) - State police say a Philadelphia-area resident has been arrested on charges related to dog fighting.

Police say Avondale troopers conducting a traffic stop in November saw a pit bull-type dog with injuries consistent with dog fighting.

They said a search of the driver’s home Wednesday turned up six pit bulls, canine training and first aid equipment and rabbits as well as drugs, currency and a loaded handgun.

The Brandywine Valley Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said the dogs are in fair condition and the rabbits’ condition was poor.

Thirty-nine-year-old Dowayne Molina was charged with animal fighting and possession of animal fighting paraphernalia, animal cruelty and weapon and drug counts.

Court documents don’t list an attorney representing Molina and a listed number for him couldn’t be found Monday.
