County: Hancock

Disposition: Alleged

» Travis T. Edwards
» Reginald Rayshon Shivers

Officer Travis T. Edwards, 33, was taken into custody Monday after an investigation led police to his Hancock County home, about 100 miles east of Atlanta, the GBI said. Authorities said they found several pit bull dogs, which were confiscated.

Special agent in charge Tom Davis said the GBI received information that prompted them to seek a search warrant from the district attorney's office.

Davis wouldn't disclose the role Edwards allegedly played in dogfighting. The officer was arrested at the Sparta police headquarters, Davis said.

Another man, Reginald Rayshon Shivers, 42, of Milledgeville, was also arrested and charged with dogfighting and cruelty to animals.
