DMX’s Arizona Home Raided; Dogs, Guns and Illegal Substance Confiscated

dmx.jpgOn Friday (August 24), DMX’s home in north Phoenix was raided by local police after they received reports that the rapper’s pitbulls were being neglected. According to Tucson’s KVOA, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says his officers confiscated 12 pitbulls, a variety of assault weapons and a half pound of what they believe to be illegal narcotics during the raid. Arpaio also reported that the bodies of three dead dogs were found buried on the premises and that authorities were still investigating whether or not any animal cruelty actually took place. Additionally, Captain Paul Chagolla told KVOA that no charges have been filed as of yet, and that the half pound of suspected drugs has been sent to the lab to determine what exactly it is. X was not at the residence at the time of the raid, and his attorney Murray Richman says his client has not been there in over two months. Richman told website on Friday that the dogs were supposed to be under the watch of a caretaker and asserted that X “loves those dogs.”
