MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) - A Mountain Home man was arrested Friday after an undercover cop disguised as a Fed Ex employee delivered a package full of drugs.

According to the Baxter County Sheriff's Office, investigators learned that a controlled substance was being shipped by way of Fed Ex to a residence on Pioneer Trail. Following this lead, investigators obtained a search warrant and obtained the package around 6:30 Thursday evening.

Upon opening the package, police discovered K-2 Derivative, a Schedule 6 controlled substance.

The following day, the undercover cop delivered the package to 35-year-old Timothy Armand Fields of Mountain Home. After Fields signed for the package and paid the COD charge, investigators from the Baxter County Sheriff's Office, the Mountain Home Police Department, the Arkansas State Police and 14th Judicial Drug Task Force executed a second search warrant and took Fields into custody.

Inside the residence, investigators found scales, plastic baggies, mixing bowls and other substances used in the manufacturing of a controlled substance. Investigators also found drug paraphernalia and evidence that the controlled substance had been consumed at the residence.

Fields was charged with Manufacturing of a Schedule 6 Controlled Substance, a class C Felony, Possession of a Schedule 6 Controlled Substance, a class C Felony and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, a class D Felony.

Fields was booked into the Baxter County Detention Center. His bond was set at $10,000 pending his appearance in Baxter County Circuit Court on September 1 at 9a.m.

According to Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery, the investigation is continuing with more arrests possible.
