Felon Charged After Illegal Drugs, Weapons Found Inside Home

CREATED May 14, 2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A convicted felon was arrested after police found illegal drugs, prescription narcotics, weapons, and cash inside his home.

Police executed a search warrant at the home on 28th Avenue North around 8 p.m. Monday. Once inside, detectives found marijuana and cocaine packaged for resale inside a bedroom.

They also found 31 pills of Soma, a Schedule IV narcotic, and two sets of digital scales with white powder that tested positive for cocaine.

Inside the kitchen, they found a measuring cup with white powder that tested positive for cocaine. Police said that is commonly used to cook powder cocaine into crack cocaine.

Police also found two loaded guns inside the bedroom, along with $2,221 cash.

The resident of the home, 41-year-old Stacy Lopez Lopp, was arrested. The convicted cocaine dealer allegedly told police he sold cocaine and marijuana for extra money, but told officers he didn't know about the guns.

He also told detectives that there were more drugs in a trash bag inside a truck in the driveway. Police search the truck and found four plastic bags containing  marijuana. Another bag of crack cocaine was also found.

Lopp was charged with multiple felony charges including possession of cocaine, Schedule IV narcotics and marijuana for resale in a drug-free school zone and gun possession in the commission of a serious drug offense. The home is within 1,000 feet of Pearl Cohn Comprehensive High School.

At the time of Monday's arrest, Lopp was free on $28,000 bond following his arrest on May 3 for cocaine possession and a probation violation warrant issued against him after his February arrest for marijuana possession.

Lopp, who has multiple cocaine convictions in his past, has been held in lieu of $85,000 bond.
