Vick home in dog-fight case

SURRY, Va. — As investigators met with a prosecutor Monday to talk about a suspected dog-fighting case, some Surry County residents and workers said they hope someone gets charged.

It’s been four weeks since 66 dogs, mostly pit bulls, and equipment commonly used in dog fighting were discovered at Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick’s property on Moonlight Road in southeast Surry County. Vick, a Newport News native, didn’t live there and has since sold the property.

On Monday morning, a representative of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Office of Inspector General met with investigators from Surry County Animal Control and the Virginia State Police, the county sheriff’s department and Gerald G. Poindexter, the county’s commonwealth’s attorney.

So far, no one has been charged, and Sheriff Harold D. Brown said Monday investigators need more time.
