ROCK COUNTY (WIFR) -- A Rock County man will appear in court tomorrow after officers say they found 60 roosters and drugs inside his home.

Sheriff's deputies spent the last four months watching 37-year-old Jorge Marquez's home in the 8400 block of West Mill Pond in Newark.

Detectives believe the roosters were bred for fighting. Officers say they also found 16 pounds of marijuana in a crawl space under the floor.
