Drug Investigation Leads to Animal Cruelty Arrests

KINGSLAND, Ga. -- A two-month investigation led to a "no-knock" search warrant and arrests on more than just drug charges.

According to a news release from Camden County Sheriff's Deputy William Terrell, a room inside the home on Lively Oaks Drive had been "extensively modified" for the indoor growing of marijuana.

Terrell said a tip from a citizen prompted the investigation, which concluded today after deputies busted open the door to the home.

More than a dozen marijuana plants and drug paraphernalia were seized, and the deputies found three dogs, two of which were tied together and covered in their own feces, Terrell indicated.

The dogs were turned over to the local humane society.

Jonathan David Bridges, 24, and Kyle David Gamage, 21, were arrested on charges of manufacturing marijuana and animal cruelty.
