FORT SMITH (KFSM) -- Cocaine, methamphetamine, psychedelic mushrooms, Peyote, illegally obtained prescriptions and nearly 200 marijuana plants were confiscated from a home on Red Bud Drive, according to Fort Smith police.

Police said they received a tip Wednesday (Feb. 28) that hundreds of marijuana plants were growing inside a home in the 6800 block of Red Bud Drive.

They also said the person who reported the three said unprescribed methadone and a Peyote cactus, used as a psychedelic, also were inside.

Homeowner Judith Mills, 65, was one of three arrested. The other residents were 24-year-old Alexandra Nelting who is a parolee, as well as Kevin Mills, who is also 24.
