Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:
Sheriff Jimmy Harris reports the Sunday arrest of two individuals after deputies went to a residence on County Road 50 near Collinsville to check on complaints of drug activity. Deputies found drug paraphernalia and packaged marijuana after executing a consent search. Kenneth Colby Knight, 26 and Marty Ray Carr, 52 both of Collinsville were arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 1st and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Both were transported to the DeKalb County Detention Center where they await bond. Drug Task Force agents and DHR workers were called to the home due to the presence of small children and other people. The children were removed and placed with a family member.
Sheriff Harris says “All of these arrests were made possible due to citizens being observant in their communities. This information was passed on to patrol and Drug Task Force agents and they were successful in locating the drugs.”
