CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Agents with the Regional Narcotics Unit have arrested three people in connection with the distribution of heroin and crystal methamphetamine in Colerain Township and Forest Park.

In April, RENU Agents identified and organization selling heroin to numerous individuals throughout the Hamilton County area. Agents then initiated an undercover investigation which included several purchases of heroin in both Colerain Township and Cincinnati from members of the organization.

On May 28, agents arrested one of the individuals after he was observed selling heroin at a business on Springdale Road and Colerain Avenue. He was identified as Criastian Carillo-Alverez, 23, of Nayarit, Mexico.

During the investigation, agents were able to identify a residence in Forest Park on West Kemper Road where drugs were being stored and distributed.

Two others were arrested after a search warrant was executed at the residence. German Navarro Garcia, 21, and Rigoberto Hernandez-Robles, 24, were placed in custody. Robles attempted to kick his way out of a rear sliding door and suffered cuts to his lates. He was treated at the hospital before being taken to the Hamilton County Justice Center.

Agents seized approximately 1.3 pounds of heroin and 3/4 pound of crystal meth during the investigation. The heroin had an estimated street value of about $88,000 and the crystal meth $48,000.

All three men are facing numerous drug charges. Robles and Garcia appeared in court on Wednesday morning, where bond for Robles was set at $5.5 million and bond for Garcia was set at $3.5 million.

In August of 2012, agents executed a search warrant at the same address and seized 2.4 pounds of black tar heroin. Agents are investigating to determine if the cases are connected.
