The newly created Imperial Valley Street Interdiction Team, made up of officers from the Calexico, El Centro and Brawley police departments, arrested two El Centro residents for possession of methamphetamine for sales Thursday.
A press release from SIT stated Oscar Aguilar, 37, and Robert Kadry, 32, were arrested for possessing 9.5 grams of methamphetamine and drug sales paraphernalia.
According to the press release, SIT agents were working an enforcement detail in El Centro about 6:30 p.m. Thursday when they saw Aguilar walk up to a mini-market in the 600 block of Euclid Avenue.
Aguilar stood outside the market for about five minutes and did not enter. Agents became suspicious of Aguilar's behavior.
