LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The owner of a Bullitt County tattoo shop accused of selling drugs from his business has taken a plea deal. 

Under the terms of the deal, there is an 8 year sentence, but Paul Turner will be eligible for shock probation 100 days after sentencing. 

The Bullitt County Drug Task Force raided Turner's business, Ink-A-Holix, in April of 2014 after receiving tips that Turner was selling drugs out of the back door of his business.

Police say they found $10,000 worth of meth, heroin, pills, guns and a bullet-resistant vest. 

The deal requires Turner to forfeit all seized items and cash. His charges included trafficking and possession of controlled substances.

A judge still has to approve the sentence that's set for January.
