LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested a Louisville man after authorities say he took part in trafficking drugs and stolen vehicle parts.

Alaa Al-Jebori, 39, was arrested Monday at the Good Wheels Auto Sale store, located at 3604 7th Street Road. Police say Al-Jebori is the owner and operator of the business.

Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers were at the business looking for a person of interest in an unrelated case. According to a police report, authorities found Al-Jebori in the parking lot, "in a vehicle that was determined to be stolen."

Investigators say as Al-Jebori got out of the vehicle, officials saw a crack pipe fall to the ground. Police say when Al-Jebori led officials inside the business, they saw a "large amount of suspected cocaine in plain view." Police say the suspected cocaine totaled about 2.34 ounces. 

Officials say a search warrant was executed, and Al-Jebori was found to be in possession of a stolen Chevy pick-up, as well as, "numerous stolen vehicle parts, car doors and a trunk lid."

Police also say Al-Jebori had several vehicles and vehicle parts that had the "identity obscured."

Authorities say Al-Jebori had $1,952 in cash and two cell phones.

Al-Jebori is facing several charges, including trafficking in cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, trafficking in stolen vehicle parts, receiving stolen property and obscuring the identity of a machine.

He is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $50,000 cash bond. He is expected in court on Tuesday.
