Larue Jackson | Cook County sheriff’s office

An Englewood man is facing felony dogfighting charges. 

Cook County sheriff’s officers and Chicago Police executed a search warrant Friday at Larue Jackson’s home in the 6300 block of South Throop, where investigators had received tips about dogfights happening, according to sheriff’s office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari.

They found 13 dogs, 12 of them without food or water, Ansari said. Some of them had scars consistent with fighting, and blood spattered the basement floor.

Another dog was found dead in the backyard. Jackson, 57, also had “items indicative of dogfighting,” such as bite sticks, dog medications and fighting ledgers, Ansari said.

A judge on Monday ordered him held on a $100,000 bond, and he is due back in court Tuesday.
