GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities have identified a man wanted in a dog fighting investigation in Georgetown County. 

Officials with the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office say deputies are looking for 23-year-old Rashad Derrell Grant of Georgetown. 

According to GCSO investigators, Grant was the unidentified subject in a photograph which law enforcement had been circulating. 

On Friday, deputies arrested 23-year-old Tywaun Heard and 22-year-old Jamie Deon Grant in connection to the case. Both were charged with animal fighting. 

Deputies also 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.

Last 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.
