FLORESVILLE -- Four suspects have been charged, and cash and dogs have been seized by the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, after deputies say they uncovered a dogfighting operation Jan. 12 on Martinez Lane northwest of here.

Arrested and transported to the Wilson County Jail were:

•Alvin Earl Williams, 27, of Livingston; participating in the earnings of or operating a facility used for dogfighting and unlawfully carrying a weapon; released after posting a total of $8,000 bond.

•Roland Eric Contreras, 32, of San Antonio; participating in the earnings of or operating a facility used for dogfighting and with violation promise to appear; released after posting $5,000 bond.

•Eusebio Arguijo Martinez -- the property owner -- 68, of Floresville; participating in the earnings of or operating a facility used for dogfighting; released after posting $3,000 bond.

•Lisa Lynn Guerrero, 31, Morgan City, La.; owning or training a dog with the intent that the dog be used in an exhibition of dogfighting and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence; released after posting $6,000 bond.

According to sheriff’s Investigator Richard Nichols, deputies led by sheriff’s Sgt. Thomas Silvas responded to the home at 7:11 p.m. after receiving a tip that cockfights were being staged in a barn on the property. When they arrived, Guerrero allegedly was attempting to dismantle a dogfighting ring.

Nichols said deputies also encountered approximately 20 spectators, most of whom said they were there to attend a barbecue. Deputies found feathers in the barn, but no roosters were located.

Deputies seized $2,106 in cash from the suspects, which was turned over to the office of the 81st Judicial District Attorney. Four pit bull dogs also were seized; two were injured, Nichols said. The four dogs, as of press time, were being housed at the Wilson County Criminal Justice Center, where they were receiving food and water. Other arrangements for the dogs were pending as of press time Jan. 14.

“Wilson County doesn’t have an animal shelter, and local vets won’t take them,” Nichols said.

As of press time, the city of Floresville had agreed to house the animals until the case has been disposed.
