Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A drug bust that was a stone's throw from a high school all started with a domestic dispute call Thursday afternoon.

Police say the homeowner greeted them with three baggies filled with a white powder at a home next to Butler High, saying it was found in Isaac Johnson's dresser drawer.

Officers called in a canine unit, which they say found marijuana packaged for sale, along with weighing scales and a powder commonly used to dilute cocaine.

Johnson, 40, of Louisville, is charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, trafficking in marijuana, trafficking drugs within 100- feet of a school and possession of drug paraphernalia.
