Two men accused of transporting 12 pounds of methamphetamine worth more than $200,000 were arrested Thursday night in the parking lot of Turlock's Costco, the Modesto Police Department reported.
Jesus Vilas Barajas, 24, of Delhi and Victor Hugo Lua, 28, of Modesto were arrested by drug enforcement agents from Stanislaus County law enforcement departments, as well as state and federal agencies.
The narcotics officers reportedly obtained a tip in the course of a long-running investigation that the men would be carrying a large amount of methamphetamine at that location.
More arrests could follow, Modesto police spokesman Sgt. Rick Aremendariz said.
Police also said Barajas and Lua were carrying $20,000 in cash.
