Suspect accused of running prescription drugs from Detroit to Louisville
Kentucky State Police say they received an anonymous tip that 32-year-old Christopher Allen would be arriving in Louisville on a Greyhound Bus.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man was arrested at the downtown Greyhound Bus station Sunday after police say he transported drugs from Detroit, Michigan into Louisville.
According to an arrest report, Kentucky State Police received an anonymous tip that 32-year-old Christopher Allen was bringing drugs into Louisville, and would arrive at the bus station Sunday morning.
Police say the bus arrived at the Greyhound Bus station at the corner of West Muhammad Ali Boulevard and South 7th Street, just before 8 a.m. Shortly after the bus arrived, police say a man matching Allen's description got off the bus and got into a grey minivan taxi cab.
According to the arrest report, police followed the van and saw the driver commit numerous traffic violations, including a failure to properly use turn signals, and speeding on West Muhammad Ali Boulevard.
At that point, police say they stopped the taxi. Allen was a back seat passenger.
Police say when they asked Allen if there were any drugs in his bag, he admitted that there was marijuana. According to the arrest report, police found 94 oxycodone pills, almost 300 hydrocodone pills and a small amount of marijuana.
Police say when confronted about the drugs, Allen admitted to bringing them from Detroit and planning to sell them for $5 a pill. He allegedly said he'd paid less than half that amount for them, and that he'd made the trip about five times in the past.
He was arrested and charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
