Metro releases identities of men arrested in connection with cockfighting ring


Metro Police released Monday the names of the four men arrested in connection with a cockfighting ring at a home in northeast Las Vegas.

Angel Alcala-Sanchez Sr., Angel Alcala-Sanchez Jr., Erasmo Fallad, and Pablo Castellanos were all arrested Sunday in the 4700 block of Judson Avenue.

Castellanos remains in jail on multiple felony animal torture and staging fights charges.

Officer Jacinto Rivera said Monday that officers seized 440 live roosters and 20 dead birds when they arrested 43-year-old Castellanos.

The living roosters were taken to the Animal Foundation.

Rivera says more than 50 people scattered when officers arrived at the home at about 10:30 a.m.  Castellanos was being held at the Clark County jail on $62,000 bail pending an initial court appearance scheduled for Tuesday. 

He is expected to have a lawyer appointed to represent him at that time. Rivera says 46-year-old Angel Alcala-Sanchez Sr., 18-year-old Angel Alcala-Sanchez Jr. and 52-year-old Erasmo Fallad also were arrested on one charge each.
