UPDATE 3-17 6:25

Kelvin and Carlos Johnson are two of the 27 people arrested early Wednesday morning (3/16) in Donalsonville, Georgia.

" I have a nephew that was involved that they beat him in the house ... my sister's house," said Aunt of two arrested Bobby J. Johnson.

Deputies say the arrests come after a two year investigation involving numerous agencies.

Deputies said they seized twelve dogs that had marks all over them believed to be from dog fighting the pit bulls owners said that isn't true.

"There were drugs seized in some of the houses money was taken out of the house several vehicles confiscated," said Seminole County Sheriff Heath Elliott.

Deputies said the Johnsons were involved in a major cocaine pipeline that ran from Mexico to Florida to Donalsonville on its way to Atlanta.

"As I was told drugs were being flushed down the toilet once they finally made entry," said Elliot.

An entry these family members say was a little too extreme.

"Police brutality .. I got the blood to prove it off my nephew," said Johnson.

Sheriff Elliot said the officers acted accordingly and from his understanding no extreme measures were taken.

"They can't keep mistreating blacks they don't do it to whites," said Johnson.

Sheriff Elliot said the total worth of all the confiscated items hasn't been tallied yet but he said he's expecting its value to be in the millions.

Several of those arrested posted bond Thursday (3/17) in Albany, Georgia after making their first appearance in court.

However, deputies said an investigation is still ongoing and more arrests may follow.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Deputies from the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said a drug sting led drug force agencies to a dog fighting bust as well.

Deputies said on Wednesday, 27 people were arrested and 24 of those were from the Seminole County area.

Deputies said several pit bulls were seized from Stern Avenue and 13th Street and said the Humane Society in Atlanta will rescue and save the seized dogs. The investigation is on going.

    Pop,Los,and the others, keep your head up. And to all those posting negative comments, let he without sin cast the first stone. They didn't force anyone to buy anything. Leave this family alone and pay attention to your own. Worried that your children were buying it, well go look in their bed room, search real good because I am sure you will find they are still buying it, now who you gonna blame, how about yourselves for being bad parents. Stop trying to blame other people for your poor parenting skills. And dog fighting, one way to tell, put the dogs in a closed area with those drug sniffing police dogs, if they rip their noses off, and stuff it up their assets, maybe they are, and maybe they wanted revenge for ruining their happy home. If you don't know the family, leave good people alone, and stop casting those stones unless your name is Jesus.

    I dislike anyone whether they be black, white, hispanic, yellos, green, orange, blue purple that pushes dope. If I was the head man, I would have anyone caught with dope use enough to OD, that would be one less pusher. There is no one on this earth lower than a person who pushes dope. They are lower than Husain or Hitler. Push drugs on my family, I will take care of you.

    I think the only fair thing to do is to place these 27 in dog pen wiht the dogs they were fighting and let the winners walk/run out of cage .
