LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've taken one more dealer of synthetic drugs off the streets of Louisville -- and it all started when the suspect failed to stop at a stop sign.
According to an arrest report, it happened just before 2 a.m. on Thursday. Police say 27-year-old Fuad Alamo was driving a 1997 Acura CL, when he failed to come to a complete stop near the intersection of Outer Loop and Judge Blvd.
When police stopped him, Alamo allegedly told them he had no vehicle insurance. Police say they could smell marijuana coming from inside the vehicle, and when an officer asked about it, he allegedly admitted to having a marijuana joint.
According to the arrest report, officers pulled Alamo out of the car and, after getting permission to search him, found two packages of synthetic marijuana on his person.
When police searched his vehicle, they say they found a total of 52 packages of synthetic marijuana, all packaged for sale.
Alamo was arrested and charged with trafficking in synthetic drugs, possession of marijuana, failure to maintain proper vehicle insurance and disregarding a stop sign.
