A third Halifax County person is now charged in a dog fighting case busted earlier this month.

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.

Two other people, 19-year-old Zhaqwaun Gary and 40-year-old Erica Powell Gary, both from Roanoke Rapids were previously charged in the case.

Gary was given a $30,000 bond and is awaiting a May 18th court appearance.
