Details have emerged from the recent arrest of dismissed Kentucky defensive back Marcus Walker, according to a property and evidence report obtained by SEC Country.

Walker — arrested on May 24 on charges of trafficking marijuana and cocaine — was reportedly found with $95,000 in cash, 52.86 grams of cocaine and over five pounds of marijuana. Police also found scales and packaging material. Walker was released on bond on May 25.

According to SEC Country's report, police initially responded to the townhome where Walker was arrested after a report of a disturbance. The dispatcher had reportedly heard a woman say she'd been hit by a male suspect and that the front window of their townhome had been broken.

When police arrived, they found Walker's roommate, Tavon Wells — who faces the same charges as Walker — and his girlfriend gone. That's when they reportedly noticed drugs throughout the home.

“Inside the door, the living room was in a state of disarray with all the furniture and television strewn across the floor along with marijuana, cash, and blood,” the affidavit read. One officer reportedly found saw three clear bags in plain view, about the size of a "soccer ball full of marijuana."

Walker, who was dismissed less than a week after his arrest by Mark Stoops, faces court on June 20.
