Police who busted an alleged cock-fighting and gambling ring in Massachusetts caught one Merrimack, N.H., man in their net.

According to The Telegraph of Nashua, Tewksbury police arrested and charged 24 people after a raid at a home on Chandler Street, where they say they found the suspects and 18 game cocks with fighting spurs -- metal devices that are used to make a cockfight more dangerous.

Armando Maciel, 55, of 81 Front St., Merrimack, was charged with animal cruelty and being present at an animal fight. He and the 23 other alleged participants in the cockfighting ring will be arraigned in Lowell District court on Monday.
