A tip about a Wednesday afternoon drug deal in a Braidwood parking lot led to police arresting two women and a man, and seizing Xanax, heroin and hypodermic needles, police said.

Detectives learned of the drug deal planned for a parking lot on East Coal City Road near Interstate 55 and headed there about 1 p.m., police said.

“Braidwood detectives observed what appeared to be a drug transaction and approached the individuals involved,” police said.

The police said they took the two women and the man into custody and confiscated 40 Xanax pills, 9 small bags of heroin, and about 50 capped and uncapped hypodermic needles, along with various other drug paraphernalia generally used to inject heroin.

The three arrested – Alexandria Cummings, 37, of the 1100 block of Geneva Street in Shorewood; Candice Sanchez, 33, of the 100 block of Wilcox Street in Joliet and Michael Todorofsky, 32, of the 20000 block of South Pine Hill Road in Frankfort – all were booked into the Will County jail.

Sanchez and Todorofsky were both charged with possession of a controlled substance, and Cummings was charged with possession of a substance with the intent to deliver.

Bond hearings for the three were scheduled for Thursday afternoon in Will County court.

Todorofsky is on parole, having been most recently released from prison after serving time for a Cook County theft conviction.
