JEFFERSONVILLE —

Jeffersonville Police say the arrest of a woman on multiple felony drug charges is a step toward improving the safety of her neighbors living in Gardenside Terrace apartments. 

Morgan Anantasia Glover, 21, of 1006 Blue Bell Court in Jeffersonville, is facing six drug-related felonies following her arrest during the April 4 execution of a search warrant in her apartment. The warrant stemmed from police susipicion that Glover was distributing heroin in the area. Upon executing the warrant, police also found multiple firearms inside Glover’s residence.

“Any time you get someone found in possession of heroin and firearms, it is definitely significant to the safety of the community,” JPD Detective Isaac Parker said, adding that as the arrest took place in the an apartment community, the children in the immediate area now have a safer environment to live and play.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed by police, Glover was not at her Gardenside Terrace apartment when they arrived to serve the search warrant at her residence. Officers waited for her to return to the complex and approached her in a common hallway of the apartment unit as she was unlocking the door to her residence.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Glover was ordered to the ground several times and had to eventually be forced to the ground. She was then taken into her home and seated in the dining room area where she was questioned by police. 

When asked if she had anything illegal on her person, “Glover then immediately pulled out a large clear plastic baggie of marijuana out of the front of her pants and threw it on the dining room table,” according to the affidavit.

Glover also told the officers there was heroin located in a cigarette box on a nightstand in her bedroom.

The cigarette box, containing a light brown, rock-like substance weighing 3 grams, pieces of foil used to package heroin and Suboxen, a prescription medication and controlled substance, were located by police. The brown substance was later confirmed by police to be heroin.

Also found in the home were a loaded .38 caliber semiautomatic handgun, several rifles, shotguns and a bullet resistant vest, police reported.

Suboxen strips, marijuana and nearly $10,000 cash were found in the home and on Glover’s person, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Glover has been charged in Clark County Circuit Court No. 2 with dealing in cocaine/narcotic drug — three grams or more and possession of cocaine/narcotic drug — more than three grams, both class A felonies; possession of controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a housing complex, a class C felony; dealing in marijuana, possession of marijuana, and maintaining a common nuisance, all class D felonies; and resisting law enforcement, a class A misdemeanor.

A $50,000 court-cash bond was set for her release during and initial hearing Tuesday. As of Wednesday afternoon, Glover remained in the Michael L. Becher Adult Correctional Complex.
