MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) - Three people from Baxter County were arrested last week following a drug investigation.

According to Mountain Home Police Chief Carry Manuel, Jessie Moore, Robert Henschell and Chelse Hughes were arrested on May 23. The arrests come after a search warrant was executed at Moore's home on Arkansas Highway 5 as the result of a two-month investigation.

Manuel said the search turned up meth, drug paraphernalia and stolen property. An investigation into the stolen property is underway.

Among several drug charges, Moore faces five felony counts of delivering a controlled substance. Henschell was charged with two drug felonies, while Hughes was charged with misdemeanor possession.

Moore is still in the Baxter County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
