NASHVILLE, Tenn.-A 46-year-old Nashville man has been indicted in a drug distribution conspiracy where police found 10 kilos of cocaine, 3 kilos of heroin, and 40 grams of fentanyl.

Walter Jones was arrested in February after he was stopped while driving with a juvenile passenger. Officers say they observed the juvenile trying to hide a pistol in his waistband and conducted a search of the car.

Inside the car they found several bags of cocaine, heroin, and over $3,000 in cash. Based on information found in the car, detectives were led to a storage unit on Cane Ridge Road. Police seized 22 pounds of cocaine, six pounds of heroin.

A search warrant was also issued at Jones' residence where police found another 1.63 pounds of heroin, a rifle, three handguns, and drug paraphernalia.

Before the arrest, Jones had been convicted for a 1999 murder. If convicted on the current charges, Jones faces 10 years to life in prison.
