two arrests made Tuesday

A search warrant executed in the 1600 block of Lark Street late Tuesday afternoon yielded two arrests and a substantial amount of narcotics, according to officials with the Big Spring Police Department.
Gabriel Aguilar, 34, of 1612 Lark, was arrested and charged with manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance – more than 400 grams. Also arrested was Jesse Deleon, 43, of Big Spring, who was charged with possession of a controlled substance.
According to Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the BSPD, the arrests were the result of a lengthy investigation into cocaine distribution in the Big Spring area.
“The Big Spring Police Department Narcotics Unit executed the search warrant at a residence in the 1600 block of Lark,” Everett said. “They were assisted by the SORT (Special Operations Response Team) team. This warrant follows a year-long investigation of cocaine distribution in Big Spring.
“Narcotics investigators made two arrests and seized approximately 2.5 pounds of cocaine and approximately $78,000 in cash. Also, four vehicles were seized.”
No injuries were reported as a result of the arrests.
According to officials with the Howard County Detention Center, both men were awaiting arraignment this morning.
