LINDEN, Ala. (AP) - Seventeen people have been indicted by a grand jury in west Alabama for their roles in a dog fighting ring.

The charges are connected to a July 26 raid in Linden.

Marengo County Sheriff Jesse Langley said all 17 were each booked on charges of dog fighting and possession of illegal drugs.

He said all the dogs, mostly mixed breed pit bulls, were euthanized after the raid.

Authorities said individuals named in the indictment come from towns and cities across the state.
