Troopers said they recovered 26 grams of heroin with an estimated street value of $5,200, plus marijuana, cocaine and another substance used in treating addiction; more than $2,500 in cash; and a loaded, stolen handgun.

Additional heroin, cocaine and Suboxone, the drug used to treat opiate addiction, were found on Fields when he was taken to the Scott County jail for booking, state police said.
