LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested two drug traffickers in southwest Louisville.
According to arrest reports, police executed a search warrant at a home on Dohn Road, near the intersection of Dover Road and Martin Avenue, just before 9 p.m. on Wednesday.
Police say they found heroin "packaged for sale," along with marijuana, numerous prescription pills, digital scales, "commonly used for trafficking narcotics," as well as two firearms.
Police arrested 36-year-old William Yelder and 45-year-old Andrea Martin, who live in the home. Both are charged with trafficking in a controlled substance.
Yelder is also charged with tampering with physical evidence, after police say he admitted to flushing several grams of heroin down the toilet.
