LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville couple was arrested Wednesday after allegedly dragging a man down the street.

According to an arrest warrant, Ian Trover, 28, and Elizabeth Allen, 25, broke into the victim's home by forcing open a rear door on September 20. The victim said he returned home to find Trover and Allen inside with a backpack full of his property.

The two apparently fled and the victim chased after them. When he reached their car, the victim's arm got caught in a seatbelt.

According to police, Trover and Allen drove off with the victim hanging from the car and then drug him down the street. They eventually stopped the car and pushed the victim out.

The victim said Allen was a former tenant who moved out a few days prior to the incident. The arrest warrant states two guns, a laptop and a camera were stolen from the victim's home. The victim positively identified the two from a photo pack.

Louisville Metro Police said Trover and Allen were arrested at their home on October 2. Upon searching Trover, police found a prescription bottle containing Adderall and the bottle also contained marijuana. A baggie of marijuana was also in plain sight in Trover's car. He stated the marijuana was ‘ours' referring to Allen.

According to a police report, Allen had a small, pink breast cancer pill holder in her purse with Adderall in it, which she did not have a prescription for. Officers also noticed a security tag wrapped in foil which appeared to have been taken off the purse. Also in the car was a large amount of clothing with the tags still on and more security tags wrapped in foil.

Trover is being charged with first degree burglary, first degree wanton endangerment, prescription controlled substance not in original container, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.

 Allen is being charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and three other unspecified charges.
