(BLOOMINGTON) - Bloomington Police arrested three people Monday night after an investigation into allegations of dealing heroin.

Police arrested 50-year-old Michael Stewart of Bloomington on two counts of dealing heroin; 40-year-old Brain Thacker of Ellettsville on three counts of dealing heroin and 40-year-old Courtney Hettle of Bloomington on a charge of maintaining a common nuisance.
Police served two search warrants at two different apartments in Building B of Walnut Grove Apartments, at 3100 S. Walnut Street Pike.

Stewart and Hettle lived in one apartment and Thacker lived in the other.

According to Bloomington Police Department Capt. Steve Kellams, the arrests are a possible link to last week's spike in heroin overdoses.

Police did not recover any of the drug during their searches.

Bloomington police officers have responded to 11 heroin overdose incidents since Feb. 1. Nine of those overdoses happened last week, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Monroe County Coroner Joani Shields said one person did die from a suspected overdose last week, but toxicology test results are pending to confirm the cause of death.
