The Halifax County Sheriff's Office says 44-year-old Elton Gary of Roanoke Rapids is charged with two felony dog fighting charges, manufacturing and possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and other drug charges.

Deputies say they discovered the dog fighting incident on April 7th.
