Douglas police officers stopped Preston Pernell Fields, 45 of Douglas, around 9 p.m., May 19, for a broken headlight. Officers discovered cocaine and marijuana inside the vehicle and requested the Douglas-Coffee Drug Unit (DCDU) to respond. DCDU agents uncovered over three ounces of marijuana during the investigation, along with approximately seven grams of cocaine and several pieces of ecstasy tablets. Fields was arrested at the scene and transported to the Coffee County Jail, where he later admitted to ownership of the drugs.

Fields has been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of MDMA (ecstasy), driving with a suspended license, and no insurance.
