Police said she and another suspect broke a window of the third story apartment and threw a loaded .45 caliber gun from the window.

Detectives seized a half pound of meth, 73 grams of heroin, several pounds of marijuana and hundreds of pills.

LMPD's SWAT unit helped while serving the warrant.

According to the arrest report, Powell and another man, Ronald Hayes, were in the master bedroom of the apartment located in the 1600 block of West Jefferson Street. When police entered, the suspects exited the bedroom, the report states.

Once they conducted the search, police found the drugs and another firearm.

Powell faces eight charges including trafficking, receiving stolen property and tampering with evidence.

Hayes faces similar drug charges, and one for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.

Police are not connecting this to a different LMPD drug raid at a Louisville dentist office with ties to Katina Powell earlier the same day.
