Five arrested in Knox after meth labs found in home

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Five people were arrested Tuesday after deputies found methamphetamine labs at a Knox County home, according to Knox County Sheriff John Pickard.

The arrests came after deputies Brian Hensley and Roy Gambrel responded to 348 Ott Road in reference to a report of a possible meth lab. When the deputies arrived, they saw John Jones standing in the doorway until Jones saw them, at which point he tried to flee.

When they entered the basement, deputies saw pseudoephedrine pills crushed and scattered across the basement floor. They also saw needles scattered about the floor of the upstairs living room and hallway. One of the needles appeared to contain methamphetamine.

Jones was searched and deputies found a small baggie of methamphetamine inside a small red metal container that was in his hand. At that point, the home was searched and an active meth lab was located in Owens’ bedroom closet, another active meth lab was found hidden beneath the seat cover of a  motorcycle frame.

Owens was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine second offense, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, controlled substance not in proper container and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Jones was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine first offense, second-degree fleeing and evading police, possession of a controlled substance first offense – meth, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, controlled substance not in proper container, possession of controlled substance.

Mullins was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine first offense and possession of drug paraphernalia.
