GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Investigators with the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office have arrested four people and are looking for three others in connection to a dog fighting and drug dealing investigation.

Deputies arrested 24-year-old Dashaun A. White, 20-year-old Melvin D. Hardwick Jr., 26-year-old Antwan White and 23-year-old Shala Armstrong.

GCSO authorities are searching for 23-year-old Tywaun Heard and 22-year-old Jamie Deon Grant, both of Georgetown, in connection to the investigation.

Investigators also released a picture of an individual who is a person of interest in the case, and are asking anyone with information on the identity of the person to call (843) 461-1331. All calls will be kept confidential.

On Wednesday, authorities executed two search warrants in the Sampit Community.

A press release states the warrants were based partially on citizen complaints as well as information regarding dog fighting and widespread heroin distribution.

Agents seized heroin, marijuana and suboxone (a schedule III narcotic).

Three dogs were impounded and a stolen television and 4-wheeler were recovered.
