Metro Police say 39-year-old Michael Anderson, 30-year-old Matthew Tidwell of Davidson County and 36-year-old Jennifer Dillon of  Brentwood, were arrested during an undercover takedown operation in a parking lot at Hwy. 70 and Old Hickory Boulevard in Bellevue after Anderson arrived to allegedly sell Tidwell and Dillon 52 grams of heroin. 
All are charged with felony drug offenses. Bonds for Anderson and Tidwell are set at $40,000 each. Dillon's bond is set at $55,000.
