A West Side man faces charges connected with dog fighting.

Myron Sloan, 39, is charged with cruelty to animals.

Police say they removed four pit bulls from his home in the 1300- block of South Keeler after a tip led them to conduct surveillance at the home.

Police say the dogs were malnourished and one had fight scars.

Sloan has a long criminal history that includes a previous conviction for animal cruelty.
