LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say two Louisville suspects decided to go into business together. The only problem is, that business allegedly involved the illegal sale of narcotics.
It started shortly after 8 p.m. in the parking lot of the Meijer grocery store on Preston Hwy., near the interchange with the Gene Snyder Freeway. Police say they had reason to believe that two suspects -- 31-year-old Jeremy C. Greer and 31-year-old Kristi Ford -- were involved in drug transactions.
Officers say they saw Ford sitting in a red 2012 Ford Mustang in the Meijer parking lot and attempted to stop her. When she saw the police vehicles, she allegedly put her vehicle in reverse and slammed into a police cruiser, causing "significant damage" in her attempt to escape.
She was apprehended in the parking lot, and allegedly admitted to possessing drugs.
According to arrest reports, officers executed a search warrant at her home on Erica Way, east of the intersection of Dixie Hwy. and E. Orell Road.
The search proved fruitful, according to arrest reports. Inside the home, police say they found a "large quantity" of Xanax, heroin, steroids, crystal meth, syringes and materials used to cut, package and weigh drugs. Police say the drugs were prepped and ready for sale.
Officers say they even found a fake soda can, which the suspects used to hide narcotics.
Both Ford and Greer were arrested and charged with trafficking in controlled substances and possession of drug paraphernalia. Additionally, Ford was charged with criminal mischief.
