LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say they've arrested a Shelbyville, Ky. man for selling synthetic marijuana in St. Matthews.
According to an arrest report, St. Matthews Police officers were working in the city's bar district, when they saw 29-year-old Victor Fallis driving a 1996 white Pontiac with a license plate that didn't match the vehicle.
Police say the tags indicated that the vehicle was registered to Ethington Auto Sales.
When officers stopped Fallis, he allegedly told them that he'd just purchased the car from a woman for $500, and hadn't had a chance to get it registered in his name. He also had no proof of insurance, police say.
Fallis was intoxicated, according to police. The arrest reports indicate that when officers searched his car, they found 60-70 individual packages of synthetic marijuana, prepared for sale. They also allegedly found a police radio scanner inside the car.
Fallis was arrested and charged with trafficking in synthetic marijuana, having improper registration, failure to maintain motor vehicle insurance, possession of a radio scanner, driving under the influence, and criminal possession of a forged instrument, among other things, according to arrest reports.
