LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Elizabethtown Police say they've arrested four people after two toddlers were found at a home where drug trafficking was taking place. 

According to arrest reports, police visited a home in the 4000 block of Church of God Road in Dyer, Kentucky, Tuesday evening, after they received a complaint that drug trafficking was taking place there.

Just after officers arrived, 34-year-old Joshua Grass drove up in a Ford Expedition, along with two others: 32-year-old Matthew Laughead and 31-year-old Alesha New.

Police say that inside the home, they found 34-year-old Shelby Stallins -- Grass' girlfriend -- as well as Stallins' children, ages 3 and 4.  

That's not all officers allegedly found. Police say they executed a search warrant at the home and discovered a safe that contained two ounces of crystal methamphetamine and over nine ounces of marijuana. Officers allegedly found another safe with $3,900 in cash, as well as surveillance cameras. Marijuana pipes and meth pipes were also nearby, as well as digital scales, according to the arrest reports.

Police say Stallins and her boyfriend, "put her small children in danger by allowing them to stay and reside where drugs were being trafficked and used at."

When Grass, Laughead and New arrived, police searched them. According to the arrest reports, officers removed two knives from Grass' person. They also allegedly found a meth pipe in his pocket, three small plastic bags of pills, and aluminum foil containing LSD.

Officers say they found marijuana, methamphetamine, xanax and other drugs inside the center console of the vehicle Grass had been driving.

Police say Grass is a "multiple time drug trafficking offender who is currently on supervised parole."

Grass, Stallins, Laughead and New all lived at the home, according to police.

A search of Laughead's pockets allegedly turned up a small tin containing methamphetamine, and officers say they found a meth pipe in his room.

While searching the home, police say they found a blue and white pouch containing methamphetamine where New had been standing. Police say she admitted to pulling the pouch from her bra and throwing it to the ground in an attempt to hide it.

Grass is charged with trafficking in a controlled substance (LSD), trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine), trafficking in marijuana, trafficking in a controlled substance (Opiates), endangering the welfare of a minor and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Stallins is charged with trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine), trafficking in marijuana, endangering the welfare of a minor and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

New is charged with possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), possession of drug paraphernalia and tampering with physical evidence.

Laughead is charged with possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

All four of them are currently being held in the Breckinridge County Detention Center.
