Owner of tattoo shop where drugs were found takes plea deal
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.
