(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.

Kyra Miller, 25, of Columbus, charged with possession of a hypodermic needle and visiting a common nuisance.

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.
