Rogers County THUG Task Force said it found more than marijuana while serving a search warrant on a Claremore house Tuesday.

Deputies say they found evidence of dog fighting.

The search warrant was for 29-year-old Garrett Lee Bump.

The deputies began to investigate and said they found several videos of dog fights.

Deputies say not only was Bump in the video, but a woman was as well, and dogs were seen being agitated by their handlers then released towards each other in a small room, with the handlers yelling, "Kill that mother (expletive). Kill him."

New cellphone video shows graphic images of the dogs biting each other on the ears and throat until one would die or a winner was declared and the handlers separated the dogs.

Deputies say there was one dog pictured standing in a bathtub after a fight, bleeding from his neck and standing in blood. The task force says it later found that dog and another dog named Tank buried in the back yard.

Deputies say the video shows the suspect, Garrett Bump, stitching the dogs back up after the fights, without any anesthesia, using only needle and thread. These videos show multiple fights at multiple locations.

Deputies said Casylin Morgan, Bump's girlfriend, was also in the videos. Deputies said she was shown with Bump, holding two puppies' hind legs and making them fight each other.

Investigators say they also found a female dog in the back of the home who just had a litter. Deputies say the dog was just used for breeding because of her size.

Animal control was called and took the dogs from the property, including the ones that were buried.
