Two Dudes And A Load Of Blow

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Jan 27, 2009 6:00PM

Two Little Village men were arrested yesterday with cocaine in their possession. How much cocaine? $19 million worth. A tip led CPD Narcotics officers to set up surveillance of a drug deal. Officers watched the deal which led to the arrests of Anastacio Esparza and Lorenzo Barrios. Esparza was driving a van containing 50 kilograms of blow and further investigation led to the arrest of Barrios who was found to be in possession of 104 kilograms at his home.
