MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) – A Region 8 man on probation faces new charges after testing positive for drugs.

The Arkansas Adult Probation and Parole Office contacted the Baxter County Sheriff's Office Friday, February 11, after Cologero Campisi failed a drug test.

The 59-year-old Mountain Home man apparently admitted he had smoked marijuana.  According to the sheriff's office, a search of his home by probation officers turned up 14 grams of marijuana.  Two smoking pipes were found in a stereo.

Campisi was charged with possession of a controlled substance (marijuana) and two counts of possession of an instrument of crime.  All of the charges are Class A misdemeanors.

Campisi was arrested and taken to the Baxter County Detention Center where he posted a bond of $1140 and was released.  He is scheduled to appear in Baxter County District Court on March 3.
