ON August 29th, 2021, Sgt. Junior Fields conducted a drug investigation into the methamphetamine sells made by Mr. Brandon Campbell. During the investigation, Mr. Campbell agreed to meet at The Budget Inn in Carthage and to bring 3.6 grams of crystal methamphetamine. Sgt. Fields, Deputy Biggs, and Officer Davis went to meet.
