Knox Man Sentenced to 20 Years on Meth Charges in Marshall County

  A Knox man was sentenced on Wednesday in Marshall County Superior Court on charges of dealing methamphetamine.

33-year-old Ryan Smith was arrested in August of 2015 after a vehicle he was in was stopped by Marshall County Sheriff’s Deputies. An air sniff was conducted by a K9 Unit and indicated the presence of drugs inside the vehicle.

According to a report, 12 grams of methamphetamine were allegedly located along with Xanax and heroin inside the vehicle. Smith was taken into custody along with Kristen Cobbs and Brandon Adkins. They’ve already been sentenced on their charges.  

Smith pleaded guilty to the crimes according to the Marshall County Prosecutor’s office.

He was sentenced on Wednesday to 22-years in the Indiana Department of corrections as part of a plea agreement. The final two years of that sentence will be served under probation.
