LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested four people after conducting a drug investigation at a home.

It happened Monday evening, at a residence on John Adams Way, just west of the intersection of Dixie Hwy. and Pendleton Road. Police say they were conducting a narcotics investigation at the home of 34-year-old Daniel Gass and 30-year-old Courtney Davenport.

Police say they knocked on the door of the home and Davenport answered, giving them permission to search the residence.

At that point, police say that two people who were in the home -- 31-year-old Winston Baker and 29-year-old Delbert Mattingly -- walked out the back door in an effort to evade police, but were apprehended.

Inside the home, police allegedly found scales, baggies and methamphetamine.

According to arrest reports, Mattingly told police that he came to the home for the purpose of buying meth from Davenport and Gass. Police say they received permission to search Davenport's phone and found text messages indicating that both she and Gass were selling meth.

Mattingly also allegedly told police that Baker and Davenport had been discussing a possible transaction involving the sale of prescription pills.

All four of the suspects were arrested and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, according to the arrest reports.
