MOUNT CARMEL — Mount Carmel police arrested a Knoxville man accused of crack cocaine possession while investigating what turned out to be a false kidnapping complaint late Tuesday night.

Shortly before midnight Tuesday, Mount Carmel Police Department Officer Ken Lunsford responded to a possible kidnapping complaint at Valley Village mobile home park at 1440 Wolfe Lane.

Lunsford told the Kingsport Times-News that when he arrived at the residence, the supposed victim wasn’t there, but her purse was there, and her friends and family couldn’t tell him where she was or who she left with.
