Convicted Felon Arrested for Possession of a Firearm

At approximately 3:45 am this date, Baxter County Deputies responded to a 911 call of a possible Fentanyl Drug overdose on County Road 54 (Old Arkana Road).  When Deputies arrived, personnel from Mountain Home Fire Department and Baxter Regional Medical Center were on scene and had administered Narcan to the 44-year old female victim.   She was transported by ambulance to the hospital.

Deputies observed a shotgun in the residence and a check showed the male, who lived at the residence was a convicted felon on Parole. A search of the residence revealed syringes and other drug paraphernalia in the residence.  The male suspect, 36-year-old Robert Dillon Willett of Mountain Home, was taken into custody and transported to jail.  Willett is charged with:

Felon in Possession of a Firearm-      Class D Felony

Possession of Drug Paraphernalia-     Class D Felony

Parole Violation

Willett, who has 39 prior Baxter County Jail Bookings, is being held in the Baxter County Detention Center on a $15,000 Bond for the Firearm Possession and a No Bond hold on his Parole Violation, pending his appearance in Baxter County Circuit Court on June 18.

The investigation is continuing with more arrests and/or charges likely.
