LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Guns, needles and drugs do not under any circumstances belong anywhere near 4-year-old girls.
Louisville Metro Police say two suspects are learning that lesson the hard way.
According to arrest reports, police executed a search warrant at a home on Pope Lick Road, just south of the I-64 / I-265 interchange, on Thursday evening. The home was the residence of 31-year-old Andrew Jenkins and 25-year-old Casey Gaebel.
During the search, officers allegedly found heroin, meth, needles, drug paraphernalia, as well as rifles and assault weapons, much of which was on the floor, in a dresser and in a closet.
Police say there was something else in the house: a 4-year-old girl.
All of the items were easily accessible to the child, police say.
Although the suspects had plenty of room for the guns, drugs and paraphernalia, there was little room for the child, according to police. The arrest reports state that the child slept in a storage room for food and books.
There was no storage for the child's belongings, police say. There was only a small bed.
Both Gaebel and Jenkins were arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a minor, trafficking in controlled substances and possession of drug paraphernalia.
