(COLUMBUS) - Ten people were arrested in Bartholomew County Wednesday after police received an anonymous tip about suspicious activity at two Columbus homes, Indiana State Police said.

Detectives said a home on Spring Valley Road was under surveillance and that multiple vehicles were seen coming and going. Troopers said they suspected hand-to-hand drug transactions and stopped a driver near the home.

Police said the driver, 43-year-old William McClintock of Columbus, was questioned by police. After questioning, police took five people at the home into custody.

Further investigation led police to a second home on Fall Valley Road in Columbus where four more people were taken into custody.

Police released the names of the following suspects who were arrested:

Brandon Fields, 31, of Columbus, charged with dealing meth, possession of marijuana and maintaining a common nuisance. He also had an outstanding warrant for meth possession linked to another investigation, police said.

Kathy Cox, 60, of Columbus, charged with dealing meth and possession of marijuana.

Mark Pagels, 34, of Columbus, charged with dealing meth and possession of a hypodermic needle.
