LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a man after he was found with what could be considered a date rape drug -- and he said he ordered it online.

According to an arrest report, an officer was in the area of South Brook Street, near the intersection with E. Kentucky Street, around 4 p.m. on Saturday, when they saw 21-year-old Bradley C. Adams park his car and walk to an apartment. Police say he then walked out of the apartment and got back into his vehicle.

Officers had seen a lot of buying and selling of narcotics at that residence recently, according to the report. 
 
Police say that as they approached Adams' vehicle, they could detect the smell of marijuana -- and Adams told them that it was possible that there was a marijuana cigarette inside.

Police also allegedly found a square plastic bag with Ketamine -- what could be considered a date rape drug -- on Adams' person. Adams allegedly told the officers it was Ketamine and that he ordered it online. Police say that inside the car, they also found the U.S. Postal Service box that originally contained the Ketamine shipment.

Adams was arrested and charged with first degree possession of a controlled substance (date rape drug).

Martin Redd, the Louisville District Group Supervisor with the Drug Enforcement Administration, says Ketamine was first marketed for medical purposes in 1970 -- but says it's abused for its ability to produce hallucinations and to facilitate sexual assault.

"If you're in the business of abusing it, what it does is it creates some type of euphoria effect," Redd told WDRB.

"We as the DEA would like to know where it came from and how he obtained it. If he did in fact get it from an internet source, that would be another huge concern for DEA," he said.

Redd says Ketamine is produced commercially in the U.S.

He says most of the Ketamine distributed illegally is stolen from legitimate sources.
