Complaint call of possible driver under the influence leads to arrest of Kenvir man for drugs
From WRIL -
On Thursday, March 31, 2022, a short time before 2:00pm Middlesboro K-9 Officer Nick Capps received a complaint of a red Chevrolet 4-door at Sonic Drive-In on Highway 25E with the driver possibly under the influence.
Once on scene, Officer Capps along with Officer Hunter Marcum approached the passenger side of the vehicle due to equipment in the way on the driver’s side. After contact was made with the passenger, 32-year-old Anthony J Carr of Kenvir, Ky., he was asked to exit the vehicle to speak with officers.
Officer Capps then made contact with the female driver who was told the reason for the complaint and she was asked to exit the vehicle for a standard field sobriety test, which she passed. She was then asked for consent to search the vehicle which was denied. Officer Capps then employed the use of K-9 Rahab for a free-air sniff of the vehicle which resulted in an alert of the passenger side door.
Upon searching the vehicle, Officer Capps located a baggy at the door panel that contained a cellophane wrapper with suspected heroin inside, two containers with the same substance, a pill bottle with 48 Xanax bars, and $1467.00 in cash.
Anthony Carr was arrested and lodged in the Bell County Detention Center charged with trafficking in controlled substance 1st degree, 1st offense (Heroin), trafficking in controlled substance – 3rd degree, 1st offense (greater than 20 dosage unit but under 120 dosage units).
He is being held on a $10,000 cash bond.
