MONROE COUNTY. Ind. –

Indiana State Police said they have busted a huge meth dealing operation in Bloomington. Police say Paxton Davis was smuggling those drugs through the mail hidden inside mannequin heads.

“It’s just really a big shock,” said Art Harper, who lives near the address listed on Davis’s arrest record. No one answered the door at that location when we stopped by, but neighbors were shocked.

“It’s a quiet neighborhood and I never really expected anything like this to happen,” said Harper.

Investigators said Paxton was getting the meth packed mannequin heads through the mail in gift wrapped packages which were overnighted from southern California.  When he was arrested, police say he had more than 1000 grams of the drug, a street value of more than $75,000.

According to police, Davis was also arrested back in August when he was found with 300 grams of meth and $15,000 in cash, along with needles and 26 guns, two of which were found to be stolen.

Davis remains in the Monroe County Jail as a judge has not yet granted bond.
