LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A man called Louisville Metro Police to report a robbery at his home, but ended up going to jail himself after what officers found.

Police were called around 6:30 p.m. February 17 to the home in the 10100 block of Park Lake Drive. After officers arrived they smelled an odor of marijuana inside the home and saw small plastic baggies on the floor. The baggies are commonly used to package drugs for sale.

The report says the resident of the home, Mark A. Rudolph, Jr., 19, gave officers conflicting stories about what happened before admitting the alleged robbery was over drugs. Police said Rudolph then turned over to them more plastic baggies, along with marijuana and a marijuana pipe.

During a search of the home, police found 50 white pills suspected to be Xanex. Police also said Rudolph admitted that he sells drugs.

Rudolph is charged with Trafficking in a controlled substance, trafficking in marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and trafficking in a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school (Wilt Elementary School).
