Police first uncovered the dog fighting ring last weekend during a drug arrest at the home on the 2300-block of Edgemont Avenue in Northwest Baltimore.

They found six injured pit bulls in the basement, along with a treadmill and heavy chains-- tools to train them how to fight.

The dogs are being treated at BARCS animal shelter.
