LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A routine traffic stop turned into a drug bust, according to police.
Officers said they pulled over Bobby Williams, 34, for failure to wear a seatbelt and having a cracked windshield. He was stopped around 5 p.m. Monday on Terry Road at Julie Kays Way near Lower Hunters Trace in the Pleasure Ridge Park neighborhood of Louisville.
During the stop, police said they noticed rolling papers in Williams' wallet and asked him if he had marijuana in the car. According to an arrest report, he said no and told officers they could search his vehicle.
Police said they found two bags of methamphetamine in the back seat; a bag of meth in the trunk; and several small plastic bags. The number of those bags "are commonly associated with trafficking narcotics," according to police.
Williams faces more charges because officers said they found a marijuana pipe on the floor board of his car. Also, the location of his traffic stop put him less than 100 feet from Conway Middle School.
In total, Williams was charged with first degree trafficking in a controlled substance, trafficking in a controlled substance within 1,000 feet from a school, possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to wear a seat belt.
