LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been accused of selling drugs from home -- while he was on home incarceration for selling drugs.
According to an arrest report, Louisville Metro Department of Corrections officers went to the home of 38-year-old Christopher Heath, on Minette Circle, near the intersection of Stephan Drive and Dixie Highway, just after 1:30 Tuesday afternoon, in order to serve a warrant.
Heath was already on home incarceration for drug trafficking, according to the arrest report.
When officers arrived, they "detected a strong odor of marijuana," the arrest report states.
Authorities say that when they searched the couch Heath had been sitting on, they found digital scales, suspected methamphetamine and suspected heroin hidden in a purple coin purse under a couch cushion.
An additional search in the "common area" of the home allegedly uncovered marijuana packaged for sale, marijuana in a grinder, rolling papers, a glass pipe for smoking meth and pipes used for smoking marijuana.
Officers say they found two vials, which Health said contained steroids.
Heath was arrested and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine), trafficking in a controlled substance (heroin), trafficking in a controlled substance (marijuana), possession of steroids, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Stacy Kessler, age 38, who was also at the home, was also arrested, authorities say. She faces the same charges.
