A Corbin woman arrested on a Whitley County warrant Sunday night, is facing additional charges in Knox County after Corbin Police discovered a drug pipe, bundles of plastic baggies and a baggie of crystal methamphetamine on her person, and a baggie of marijuana under her car seat.
Forty-seven-year-old Dawn T. Hoskins is facing charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance – methamphetamine, first-degree possession of a controlled substance – methamphetamine, tampering with physical evidence, public intoxication – controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, controlled substance prescription not in original container, possession of marijuana and illegal possession of a legend drug.
Corbin Police Officer Mike Bisschop conducted a traffic stop on the car in which Hoskins was a passenger at the Trademart Shopping Center about 7:14 p.m.
As part of the stop, Bisschop stated that he checked Hoskins’ identification and learned she was wanted on a warrant charging her with receiving stolen property of the value under $10,000.
“Upon having (Hoskins) exit the vehicle to be placed under arrest for the warrant, a small glass pip with drug residue fell from her pants to the ground,” Bisschop stated in the arrest report. “As (Hoskins) moved around several bundles of baggies commonly used in drug trafficking also fell from her pants.”
Bisschop said he asked Hoskins multiple times if she had anything else hidden and gave her several opportunities to retrieve it.
When Hoskins refused, Bisschop said London Police Officer Ashley Wampler searched Hoskins, finding the baggie of crystal meth.
“Her purse was also searched and gabapentin was located in an ibuprofen bottle,” Bisschop stated in the arrest citation.
Bisschop added that he recovered a small amount of marijuana along with a second glass pipe under the passenger’s seat where Hoskins had been sitting.
“Located inside the vehicle were digital scales and other items consistent with drug trafficking.”
Hoskins was lodged in the Knox County Detention Center where she is being held on a $10,000 cash bond.
