Early this morning, members of the Ontario SPCA Major Case Management Team, Chatham-Kent Police Service Intelligence Unit, Critical Incident Response Team, Forensic Identification Unit, Major Crime Section and Community Patrol Branch executed multiple warrants at a residence in Tilbury East Township.

Chatham-Kent police say that approximately 40 dogs were seized from the property and placed into the care of the Ontario SPCA. The animals were found in various health conditions.

A large quantity of evidence that is consistent with the training of dogs to fight was seized. In addition to the dogs and training equipment, a number of firearms were also found and seized.

Police say that due to the complexity of this incident and large amount of evidence found on the property, this investigation will be on-going.

The dogs will be individually assessed by a veterinarian, and a treatment plan will be created based on their needs.

A 43-year-old man, 41-year-old man and 39-year-old woman, all from that same location, are facing animal cruelty and firearm related offences.

They will be held in custody pending a bail hearing.
