REPORT: Traffic stop leads Louisville police to major drug bust
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is facing a number of serious charges after police say they found pot, cocaine, heroin, LSD, cash and guns in both his car and his residence.
An arrest slip says 25-year-old William Medley was driving a tan Honda in the 7100 block of Creekton Drive when detectives stopped him around 9:30 p.m. Feb. 5. A strong smell of marijuana was allegedly coming from the car as officers approached, and police say Medley admitted to having marijuana in the car.
According to the arrest slip, Medley consented to a search. That's when officers say they found marijuana, a substance known as marijuana butter, cocaine, heroin, acid, digital scales, and two pistols. Police say they also found a large amount of cash in the car.
Based on the contraband found in Medley's car, detectives searched his residence. That's where they allegedly found more money, "several blotter sheets of acid" (LSD) a Glock handgun and a pump shotgun, as well as a number of Xanax pills and more pot. Detectives also found a stolen .380 pistol in the pocket of a jacket in the bedroom closet, according to the arrest report.
Police say they also recovered a large quantity of ketamine (a type of anesthetic) and materials used to package/distribute narcotics.
Medley is charged with five counts of enhanced trafficking in a controlled substance, enhanced possession of paraphernalia, and enhanced receiving stolen property.
