NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A man was arrested Wednesday after authorities initiated several controlled heroin buys over the past month, culminating into a takedown.

Jesus Perez-Padilla, 30, was arrested at the Walgreens located at 1301 Bell Road in Antioch.

The first controlled heroin buy occurred on July 23 near the intersection of Old Hickory Boulevard and Nolensville Road. A confidential informant purchased 7.3 grams of heroin from Perez-Padilla.

The second buy occurred nearly three weeks later at the Walgreens on Bell Road.  The informant bought 50 grams of heroin.

Authorities conducted surveillance during the third controlled heroin buy on August 16.  The confidential informant again purchased 50 grams of heroin from Perez-Padilla.

Five days later, police initiated a takedown at the Walgreens and Perez-Padilla was taken into custody without incident.

Authorities said they found four bags of heroin inside his vehicle amounting to over 100 grams.

Perez-Padilla was charged with four felony counts of having a controlled substance in a drug-free school zone.

According to police, Perez-Padilla drove by Mt. View Elementary School on his way to the drug sales.

His bond was set at $100,000.
