FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

An investigation by Madison Precinct undercover detectives led to the arrest of convicted drug dealer Calvin “Pops” Cook who is suspected of peddling pills and heroin from his Ocoee Trail home and in area parking lots.
         
Undercover detectives Thursday observed Cook, 58, make a hand to hand drug transaction from his vehicle in the parking lot of Walgreens, 3880 Dickerson Pike. Officers stopped Cook on Old Hickory Boulevard and Gibson Drive.  He was in possession of 3.5 grams of heroin.
         
Late last month, Cook allegedly sold a police operative .5 grams of heroin at his 1540 Ocoee Trail residence. 
         
Cook is charged with heroin possession in a drug-free school zone, felony possession of heroin and methadone, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.  He is being held in lieu of $90,000 bond.
         
Cook was convicted just last month of selling methadone from his residence in 2013.  He received a three-year probated sentence.
