Brown County Sheriff’s deputies were familiar with a Shamrock Shores home, its residents and a pit bull terrier that stayed there when they served a search warrant for narcotics Thursday night.
Deputies and Brownwood police were at the home in December, and they arrested four people then including Cheryl McEwen, 39, and her daughter, Lisa Cogburn, 19, on drug-related charges.
Deputies returned Thursday night with another search warrant and arrested McEwen and Cogburn once again after finding methamphetamine, marijuana, packaging materials and scales, sheriff’s Sgt. Tony Aaron said.
Deputies also shot and killed the pit bull terrier after it attacked a deputy in the home, Aaron and Sheriff Bobby Grubbs said.
The dog attacked deputy David Varner, who shot it with his pistol, Grubbs said. The dog got up to resume the attack, and deputy Scott Bird shot it with an assault rifle, Grubbs said.
Varner, who was bitten in a leg, was not seriously injured but the dog is being checked for rabies because it had not been vaccinated, Grubbs said.
McEwen was booked into the Brown County Jail on charges of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana, jail records state. Cogburn was booked on a charge of possession of a controlled substance.
Deputies served the search warrant around 7:30 p.m. at the home on St. Patrick’s Drive, Aaron said.
