Whitley County Sheriff Dept.

Around 8 p.m. October 23, 2017, the sheriff’s department responded to Keswick Road, where Glennis L. Anderson, 46, of that area, was reportedly causing a disturbance.

Deputy Jonas Saunders recognized Anderson as the driver of a passing vehicle. Dep. Saunders alerted Dep. E.J. Miller and provided a vehicle description. When Dep. Miller attempted to stop the vehicle, it exited the roadway and got stuck in a ditch.

In plain view was a pipe in the center console area, and Anderson was confirmed to have multiple warrants for his arrest. A bag containing several pills believed to be Neurontin was also found in the console area.

The passenger, Allison Carpenter, 33, was detained during the investigation. Where she had been standing, Dep. Saunders found a plastic bag on the ground containing what’s believed to be methamphetamine.

Carpenter was arrested for first-degree possession of a controlled substance (meth) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Anderson was charged with unlawful possession of a legend drug, possession of drug paraphernalia, no insurance, no license and several warrants for non-payment of fines, failure to appear and contempt of court.

Both were lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center.
