(BLOOMINGTON) - A Kentucky man was arrested Saturday morning by Bloomington Police after they received information about a possible drug deal.

Police arrested 35-year-old Christopher Lomax, also known as "D" or Deshone Thomas, on charges of possession of a narcotic drug with the intent to sell, possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, receiving stolen property and identity deception.

According to police, detectives received information that Lomax was transporting heroin from Louisville to Bloomington and would be in town Saturday morning. Officers waited for him to arrive.
