OGDEN -- Two men were arrested after police say they were running a major methamphetamine operation in Ogden.
Ricardo Vega, 23, and Guilebaldo Lopez, 30, were each booked into Weber County Jail on Saturday.
Lopez was booked on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school with intent to sell and providing contraband to a person in jail. Both are felony charges.
Vega was booked on a red light violation, no driver's license, failure to signal for three seconds and possession of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school with intent to sell.
Agents with the Weber-Morgan Strike Force and officers with the Ogden Crime Reduction Unit were involved in the bust.
On Saturday, officers in an ongoing drug investigation stopped a vehicle with Vega and Lopez inside. The car was searched, and officers found more than six ounces of meth, with a street value of about $7,200, in the vehicle. After the vehicle was searched, officials were able to gather enough information to obtain a search warrant for a home in the 2200 block of Van Buren Avenue, where Vega lived.
Inside the home, agents discovered an additional nine ounces of meth, with a street value of $10,800, three guns, and more than $20,000 in drug proceeds.
Both Vega and Lopez are undocumented aliens from Mexico, and immigration holds were placed on them at the jail.
