LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Authorities with the Scott County Sheriff's Office say they've arrested a man after they seized various drugs from his vehicle.

According to a news release from the sheriff's office, it happened on Thursday. Authorities say they tried to stop a vehicle driven by Patrick Hirstein. 

Hirstein allegedly refused to stop, leading sheriff's deputies on a brief pursuit before they finally stopped him and took him into custody.

That's when they brought in Arina, a drug dog, to search the vehicle. According to the news release, Arina gave a positive indication for the possible presence of the scent of narcotics. 

At this point, authorities searched Hirstein's vehicle and allegedly found 40 grams of suspected methamphetamine, eight grams of suspected heroin, numerous controlled substances and digital scales.

Hirstein was arrested and searched, resulting in the discovery of "a substantial amount of U.S. currency," according to the release. 

He was taken to the Scott County Detention Center. Hirstein is charged with -- among other things -- dealing in meth, possession of meth, possession of cocaine or a narcotic drug, dealing in a controlled substance and resisting law enforcement.
