LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville man was arrested after police found him trafficking drugs across the street from a high school.

According to his arrest report, John Bennett Donan, 18, was spotted by officers on the afternoon of February 6  pulling into a lot across from Eastern High School in the 12600 block of Old Shelbyville Road just as school was letting out. The officers, who were conducting a narcotics investigation, said after Donan's car pulled in there was a lot of activity around his vehicle.

The report says Donan became "alarmed and fidgety" after a K-9 officer arrived. When Donan was searched, police found a large pill bottle with no label holding marijuana and 16 yellow oval pills.

Donan has been charged with trafficking in a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, trafficking in a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
