Two men and a woman were arrested on drug charges Monday night after a police officer said he saw what he believed to be a drug deal in front of a liquor store.
Officer R. D. Martin said he saw a van parked on the lot of Clauss Liquors in the 600 block of Crain Highway about 5 p.m.
Officer Martin watched three people get out and throw a purple bag in some weeds.
The three were detained and officers retrieved the bag.
Officers said five one-eighth ounce bags of cocaine were inside the bag.
Craig D. Hebron, 33, of the 7400 block of Race Road in Hanover, and Lynea Sedrell, 33, of the 8000 block of Catherine Ave. in Pasadena, were charged with drug possession.
Eric A. Tyler, 33, of the 300 block of Cool Breeze Court in Pasadena, was charged with drug possession and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
