Three Murfreesboro residents were arrested Monday night after a joint investigation including Special Agents with the Drug Investigation Division of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Tactical Diversion Agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration, and detectives with the Murfreesboro Police Department, into incidents of fentanyl-laced heroin.
