Naperville police have charged three people within the past week for selling heroin, authorities said.
A monthlong investigation led to the arrests Tuesday of Brandon Bolton, 24, and Carly Cooper, 21, both of the first block of Madison Avenue in Aurora.
Police said Bolton and Cooper were involved in a drug transaction about 7:15 p.m. Jan. 31 in a retail parking lot near the 700 block of S. Route 59. About 15 bags of a substance that tested positive for heroin were recovered, police said.
Both were charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.
On Wednesday, a 17-year-old Naperville high school student was arrested on charges of selling heroin in a parking lot near Route 59 and 75th Street in Naperville.
Brittany Hursh, of the 2100 block of Snow Creek Road, was charged with one count of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.
Naperville police stopped Hursh at 9:04 p.m. Wednesday after detectives observed her doing a drug transaction in the parking lot, police said. Hursh was found to be in possession of several foil packets and other paraphernalia, and all of the items tested positive for heroin, police said.
The charge carries a maximum prison sentence of four to 15 years after a conviction.
