GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Two men wanted for dog fighting charges in Georgetown County have been arrested. 

Authorities arrested 23-year-old Tywaun Heard and 22-year-old Jamie Deon Grant on Friday. 

Heard was charged with animal fighting or baiting, while Grant was charged with presence at facility of animal fighting or baiting. 

Officials with the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office say they are continuing to search for a person of interest captured in a picture, and are asking anyone with information on the identity of the person to call (843) 461-1331. All calls will be kept confidential.

Deputies have already 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 in connection to the investigation. 

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.
