HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE)– A Henderson man is facing charges after a month long investigation.

Deputies say 33-year-old Michael Jourdan II was arrested Wednesday night by the Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force.

He was spotted leaving a home on North Green Street when law enforcement attempted to confront him and three other people.

They say the group tried to go back inside and refused to cooperate. That’s when officials forced their way inside and found Jordan in the bathroom.

50-year-old Tamra Betz was found hiding under a bed.

Both were arrested on warrants.

During the investigation, detectives found more than 100 syringes, including some that contained meth. They say they also found meth, scales, and packaging material.

Jourdan was also charged with drug trafficking.

Detectives say this is an ongoing investigation with additional charges and arrests forthcoming.
