LMPD: Six arrested in suspected drug house
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Metro Police Detectives arrested six people in a raid on a suspected drug house in west Louisville Tuesday.
The homeowner is already on home incarceration and now he is in even more trouble because of what police say they found in his front yard and behind the front door.
It was all quiet by late Tuesday, but neighbors on South 20th Street say it was loud and crowded Monday night.
"When I came home, there was an abundance of police cars and I think there was a vehicle from metro corrections there and I was like, what really is going on here today," said Jonathan Harris, a neighbor.
Harris said he was surprised to see all of the police activity on his block.
"Don't really know what was going on, I know that we had some new neighbors that joined us on the street."
Those new neighbors are now the focus of a Metro Police investigation.
"We've never had those type of issues those type of problems never existed on our little street," said Harris.
According to a Metro Police citation, officers responded to the home after a complaint about people using heroin and leaving syringes in the front yard.
Harris said, "Assuming that they were just regular -- normal people, this was all new to me."
Police say the home belongs to Sean Mattingly, who is already on home incarceration. And according to the citation, officers found heroin, meth, LSD, prescription pills -- packaged for sale -- and 26 syringes -- all inside the home.
"All of our neighbors, everybody on the street, we are relatively close and this is alarming to us," Harris said.
Meanwhile, first division detectives are working the case and also arrested Anthony Acton, Keith Haggard, Brandy Wooten, Whitney Hanlon and Whitney Chandler.
"I would like to find out what is going on. Our street is relatively quiet. We've had no incidence on our street," said Harris.
Right now, the suspects are locked up at Metro Corrections on drug trafficking charges.
