Sheriff's deputies raided the home of rapper DMX on Friday, seizing several pit bulls and finding the remains of three other dogs but making no arrests. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office received a tip more than a week ago about dogs.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said Wednesday that he is sending the carcasses of three dogs found buried at the Cave Creek-area home of rapper DMX to a forensics scientist in Atlanta to discover their cause of death.

The dead dogs, including one that was burned, were discovered Aug. 24 with 12 undernourished pit bulls at DMX's home, police say along with
• Cars with license plates that can't be traced to the vehicles they were on.
• Semi-automatic and automatic weapons.
• Drug paraphernalia and a "usable amount" of marijuana.
• A mysterious but legal chunky white substance.

Is it DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, or the caretaker, who was identified Wednesday as Brad Blackwell, or someone else?

The rapper has had trouble with the law before. In 1999, he pleaded guilty to animal neglect after 13 pit bulls were found in his Teaneck, N.J., home.

Deputies went to the rapper's home Aug. 7 after receiving an animal-cruelty complaint from an anonymous tipster who also suggested dogs were buried on the property.

Investigators found eight dogs outside and four inside in small airline carriers. Some dogs were "underweight" and at least was one described as "emaciated."

Three days later, the dogs still had no food or water, leading investigators to request search warrants.

Arpaio said the dogs would remain in the jail cells as long as they are needed "because they are evidence."

A local news station has learned the investigation into high-profile rapper DMX involves much more than animal cruelty.

The search warrant from the Friday raid on his Cave Creek home reveals that aside from a dozen malnourished dogs, detectives also found cars with untraceable license plates, rattlesnakes in the rapper's kitchen and blood all over one room.

Dog fighting has been around for along time but it is nice to see that something is finally being done no matter who is doing it....

The reward offered in a recent dog cruelty case has increased to $5,000, thanks to a contribution from the Humane Society of the United States.

The money will be paid out for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the torture and killing of a tan female shepherd mix. The dog's body was found June 1 on a canal bank at County 10-1/2 Street and Avenue G.

A Border Patrol agent found the body of the young female tan shepherd mix with bailing wire tied around her neck on a canal bank at County 10-1/2 Street and Avenue G on Friday, the humane society said.

They need to enforce federal laws against this behavior. Its sickening.
