Hidalgo county investigators say arrest will be made in the case of a cockfighting ring busted near Donna this weekend.
Officials found at least 150 people inside a home near Victoria and Lott road in South Donna Sunday night. The group gathered there to watch cockfights and betting on those fights. Investigators questioned the owner of the home and two other men and they confessed to running the cockfighting ring.
Deputies collected $2,700 dollars in cash and they believe that money was paid to attend the illegal fights. The men may be arrested later in the week while the investigation continues.
