A 28-year-old Belvidere man has been arrested on drug dealing charges following a two month investigation by the Belvidere/Boone County Metro Narcotics Unit.

Police say Cristian A. Roman is charged with three felony counts of Unlawful Delivery of a Cocaine within 1,000 Feet of a Church and is being held in the Boone County Jail on no bond.

The arrest comes after the task force along with federal DEA agents executed a search warrant on Thursday in the 100 block of E. Macomb St.  Roman was arrested after detectives found cocaine, a scale, and an undisclosed amount of cash.  They say more charges may be filed against him.

If convicted, two of the felony counts carry maximum sentences of 30 years in prison while the third carries a maximum prison term of 15 years.
