    Details:

    On July 12, 2015 at 12:55 pm, deputies responded to 1105 Teakwood Avenue to investigate a dog bite and a person in need of medical attention. Upon arrival, deputies found the victim sitting in a chair on the front of the residence. The victim had sustained numerous lacerations and bite marks from a 1-1/2 year old pit bull that had escaped from the house. EMS responded and transported the victim to an area hospital for treatment of her injuries.

    Patrol units detected the odor of marijuana emanating from within the residence which housed the dog. Although the residents were cooperative during the dog bite investigation, they were non-compliant after being asked for consent to search the house due to the odor.

    Deputies obtained a search warrant and seized a total of 314.7 grams of marijuana, 46.6 grams of mushrooms, 20 grams of amphetamines and a small juvenile marijuana plant found growing in the backyard of the residence. The vast majority of the narcotics were located in a small safe located in one of the bedrooms.

    Jonathan Cintron and Michael Portelli were arrested and transported to the Orient Road Jail.
