A Corbin man is facing his third case of possession of methamphetamine after Knox County Sheriff’s deputies found 23 grams (.811 ounces) of suspected crystal methamphetamine along with assorted drug paraphernalia in his car Saturday night.


According to Sheriff Mike Smith, Deputy Sidney Wagner arrested 37-year-old Carl E. Ruppe in a field near Spider Creek Road off of Standard Ave.

Smith said Wagner saw the vehicle near a field and stopped to investigate.

“He stated he had pulled over to fix a headlight,” Wagner stated in the arrest citation. “While speaking with him I noticed he had slurred speech and dilated pupils. He also had marks on his arms consistent with an IV drug user.”
