LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say a Louisville man was arrested Monday night after officers found over 100 grams of heroin in his home.

It happened at the home of 48-year-old Anthony Clark.

Police say they were conducting a drug investigation at the home on N. Hite Avenue, near Frankfort Avenue, when Clark drove away in a blue van. Police in a marked LMPD vehicle stopped Clark for an alleged traffic violation.

Officers then executed a search warrant, and Clark allegedly admitted to having narcotics, both in his vehicle and in his home.

Police say they were able to confirm this, discovering a total of more than 100 grams of heroin in his residence and vehicle. They also allegedly found scales, razor blades and baggies.

According to the arrest report, Clark had recently been released from federal parole for drug trafficking, and has an "extensive" criminal history in Chicago.

He was arrested and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance (heroin) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
