MAXTON, NC (AP) — North Carolina authorities are searching for a Scotland County man they say is the ringleader of multiple dog fighting operations.

The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office and state Alcohol Law Enforcement agents have pending felony charges for 69-year-old Frank Jacobs of Laurinburg.

Jacobs was among 27 people arrested Saturday in a raid on a Robeson County home where authorities say a dog fight was under way.

After those arrests, police then raided Jacobs’s home in Laurinburg. They say they found 13 dogs, many with wounds or scars, along with dog-fighting paraphernalia and several quarts of moonshine.

Authorities think Jacobs is involved in more than one large-scale dog-fighting operation, including some that extend into other states.

It couldn’t be immediately determined Wednesday if Jacobs has a lawyer.
