Deputies and animal control workers are scouring a home where a drug arrest turned into an even larger investigation. Pinellas County deputies uncovered what looks like a dog-fighting operation on 126th Terrace North in Largo Monday night. Deputies discovered several pit bulls when they arrested Michael Hearns on drug and weapons charges.
Deputies found dog fighting equipment in the home as well.
Efforts to get the dogs out of the home safely are underway right now.
