A Knox County Sheriff’s deputy recovered approximately 2 pounds of methamphetamine and 1 pound of marijuana Monday morning off of the Corbin bypass, arresting two people on drug trafficking charges.
Deputy William Stewart, the department’s public affairs officer, stated that Deputy Mikey Ashurst was on patrol on Buchanan Drive, off of the bypass, at approximately 4 a.m. when he observed a pickup truck parked near a gate.
Ashurst determined the driver, identified as Joe Barlow Owens, 43, of Blacksburg, South Carolina, and the passenger, identified as Stephanie L. Brock, 34, of Rockholds, to be under the influence of an unidentified controlled substance.
Upon searching the vehicle, Ashurst located the methamphetamine and marijuana, along with several Oyxcodone tablets, Suboxone strips, a loaded handgun, a set of digital scales, a “meth” pipe, and more than $8,000 in cash.
