A Louisville man is facing multiple felony drug charges after he was arrested as a result of a traffic stop in the Lincoln community.
According to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, a vehicle driven by Donald Estes, (48), Louisville, was stopped for a traffic violation on February 16, 2019 on Union Light Road.
Deputies said that Estes was found to be operating on a suspended driver's license. Through the investigation, Estes was arrested for being in possession of a controlled substance (third degree). He was also charged with Prescription controlled substance-not in proper container, and Obstructed vision or windshield.
According to the Sheriff's Office, once Estes had been taken into custody at the Hart County Jail, officials discovered a bag of what was suspected meth concealed on his person. He then received additional charges of Trafficking controlled substance (first degree)-second offense-meth (greater than two grams). He will also face charges in Hart County for Promoting contraband (first degree).
The incident marks the second felony drug arrest made on Union Light Road within one week. A father and son were arrested last Saturday on the same road on meth and other drug related charges.
