According to the affidavit for arrest by Ottawa County Sheriff’s Investigator Chris Morris, Fields, 46, and Brady, 44, were both on probation when items were allegedly found in the home, located at 102 East D Street, Commerce, which are used in the manufacturing of meth.
On Sept. 18 Morris and Ottawa County Sheriff’s Detective Holli Goforth went to the home after receiving information Fields was manufacturing an odor associated with meth was smelled inside the home, the report said.
While being questioned Brady asked if he could go to his bedroom to put his shoes on. Morris said he observed an open beer on the table near Brady’s bed. When asked if there was anything else in the room that he shouldn’t have, Brady allegedly pointed to a dresser drawer and said, “I think what you’re looking for is in there.”
The report said a piece of aluminum foil with a brown burnt substance, which field tested positive for meth, and a green leafy substance, which field tested positive for marijuana, were both found inside the dresser drawer.
While outside being questioned if there was a meth lab in the home, Fields began stating that the meth found in Brady’s room was his and that “Brady had nothing to do with it.”
Items allegedly found inside Fields’ bedroom include a light bulb converted into a smoking pipe with a brown burnt substance which field tested positive for meth, small baggies with a white powdery substance, numerous small baggies, “Fuzion” digital scales, lithium batteries, numerous coffee filters, broken glass pipe with burnt residue, instant cold packs containing ammonium nitrate and numerous new and used syringes, the report said.
