Hazleton Man Facing Charges after Roosters Found in Post Office

January 08, 2019 - 11:46 am

A 40 year old Hazleton man is now facing several felony counts after roosters were discovered  in a box at the Hazleton post office being shipped to Puerto Rico. Luzerne County SPCA officers were called early in December when the animals were heard crowing. Upon investigation it was determined the animals were used for fighting. Alexandro Martinez is out on bail after officials served a search warrant on his North Wyoming Street residence and found other "fighting birds" and other evidence of the sport in the basement.
