LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested a woman after they say she was dealing drugs from a hotel room in the presence of five children. 

Nikia Ramsey, 33, was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon, two weeks after the alleged crimes. 

According to the arrest warrant, police were sent to the Home Towne Studios in Jeffersontown on Sept. 7 on a complaint about the occupants of a room there. When officers  arrived, the warrant says they "witnessed hand-to-hand instructions which involved a juvenile occupant of the room." 

Police say they also saw a man, identified as Ernest Cuyler Jr., conduct another drug transaction in the parking lot. When they stopped the vehicle, police say they found a "bindle that contained heroin and had a receipt which contained defendant and co-defendant's names." 

After running a check, officers determined that Cuyler was wanted on several warrants. When uniformed officers tried to stop Cuyler, he allegedly ran away and police were unable to locate him. After entering the room and observing drugs in plain view, police got a warrant, searched the room and found heroin, meth, pills, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and bullets, according to the arrest report.

Police say three children under 6 years of age were asleep in the room. Two other children, ages 15 and 17, were also staying in the room. 

Robinson was arrested and charged with two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, and five counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.
