CARYVILLE, TN (WLAF) – A Caryville man remains housed in the Campbell County Jail this morning on multiple charges stemming from his 10th arrest, according to jail records.

Ron Lynn Carroll recently received plenty of attention from two law enforcement agencies, the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office and the Caryville Police Department. The agencies teamed to apprehend the 48- year- old man. “I am proud of our officers and proud of our partnership with the Caryville Police Department,” said Sheriff Robbie Goins.

In a release from the sheriff’s office, it was reported that during an investigation, the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office learned Carroll was responsible for an aggravated burglary. At about the same time, Caryville Police Sgt. Corey Laxton was also looking for Carroll.

Sheriff’s detectives successfully initiated a traffic stop on Carroll near the closed Exxon station at I-75 and McGhee Blvd on July 18 just after 2pm. The CCSO K-9 Officer Santo immediately alerted to drugs inside Carroll’s vehicle. CCSO Lt. Travis Bostic and other officers searched the vehicle and found a large amount of cash, drug paraphernalia and pills inside.

Laxton placed Carroll under arrest and transported him to the Campbell County Jail.

“Our ability to work so closely with other departments has been key to our success in countless cases.  I appreciate Sgt. Laxton’s work in helping to make our community safer.  Officers like Laxton represent the best of the best,” added the sheriff.

Carroll, of 151 Reservoir Lane, Caryville,, was charged with aggravated burglary, possession of schedule II controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and violation of probation. A court date of July 28 awaits Carroll who is being held on a $50,000 bond. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 07/26/2022-6AM)
