LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Metro Police stopped a car for expired registration plates in the 4400 block of Kurtz Ave. on Wednesday. When officers approached the vehicle they could hear Louisville Metro Police dispatches coming from the car, according to the arrest report.

Inside the car the officers found the passenger, 23-year-old Matthew W. Goodlett of Louisville, with a cell phone that had a police scanner application. Police say Goodlett was attempting to turn off the application and simultaneously hide a meth pipe and methamphetamine rock between the passenger door and seat when they approached the car.

The driver of the vehicle, 31-year-old James D. Jones of Radcliff, gave police consent to search the car and they discovered a clear bag of suspected meth along with meth pipes and items matching those needed to manufacture methamphetamines.

Both Goodlett and Jones were arrested and charged with manufacturing meth, possession of a controlled substance among other charges. Police say that both men have previous convictions for possession of a controlled substance.
