Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say they have taken several pounds of drugs off the street after arresting a Louisville man wanted on violent felony charges late Thursday night. 

According to the LMPD Facebook page, detectives from the 9th Mobile Unit were conducting surveillance in downtown Louisville when they spotted 32-year-old Brandon Hobby, who was wanted for several violent felonies.

After recognizing Hobby, detectives got a warrant to search a residence at Aloft Hotel at 102 E. Main Street. That's where police say they found four "large ziplock bags containing suspected methamphetamine."

Police say Hobby admitted the "dope" belonged to him. Police then got another warrant to search a residence in the 4200 block of Fordson Way near Southwestern Parkway in the Chickasaw neighborhood.

That's where police say detectives found "a large amount of powder cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana." 

Police say they also found a loaded gun reported stolen out of Marion County, Kentucky, hidden inside a grill outside the side door. 

Hobby was booked into Metro Corrections around 9:30 p.m. on July 6. He faces several charges, including three counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, and receipt of stolen property. 

Hobby is being held without bond at Louisville Metro Corrections.
