Police say it started with a traffic stop.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two people have been arrested in Shepherdsville after police say a traffic stop led to the discovery of methamphetamine, marijuana, cash and several firearms.
According to a news release from the Shepherdsville Police Department, it started on Wednesday, when police stopped a vehicle that was being driven with a headlight out on KY-44, near Melwood Drive.
Police say when they approached the vehicle, they saw a digital scale in the front seat that, "appeared to be covered in methamphetamine." Inside the vehicle, police say they found over half-pound of methamphetamine, several thousand of dollars in cash, as well as drug paraphernalia.
The vehicle search led to police executing a search warrant at a home in the 300 block of Circle Drive, near the intersection of Melwood Drive and East 4th Street, in Shepherdsville. Police say they found another bag of suspected methamphetamine, a bag of marijuana, cash, ammunition and several firearms -- one of which had been reported stolen.
Thirteen vehicles were also found on the property.
Police executed another search warrant at a business in the 1700 block of Cedar Grove Road, just east of the interchange with Kentucky Turnpike, in Shepherdsville. Methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and a firearm were seized in that raid.
Two people were arrested: 36-year-old Jeremy Dunton is facing charges of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine), possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with physical evidence, driving with one headlight and resisting arrest.
Analisa Dunton, age 31, is preliminary charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine), possession of drug paraphernalia, tampering with physical evidence, possession of marijuana, disorderly conduct, obstructing government operations, second-degree fleeing or evading police and resisting arrest.
