2 arrested on drug charges as part of 4-month probe

February 06, 1997

Two more Westminster residents have been arrested on drug charges as part of a four-month undercover operation by city police, authorities said.

The investigation was aimed at street-level dealers in an effort to reduce the availability of drugs such as crack cocaine and marijuana on the street, police said. The two arrests Tuesday followed six others during the weekend.

Carlos B. Perez, 25, of the 100 block of E. Main St. was charged with possession and distribution of marijuana and was released on his own recognizance Tuesday evening, police said.

A 17-year-old was charged with possession and distribution of cocaine, police said. He was awaiting an appearance before a juvenile master to determine whether he would be released or held as a juvenile, police said.

The investigation began in October, and police have said they expect to make seven more arrests.
