Cesar Galaviz-Orozco, 33, of Dotsero, was arrested Jan. 23 after allegedly selling to an undercover agent in Gypsum.

Jesus Castaneda-Cuevas, 20, of Carbondale, was arrested Jan. 26 after allegedly selling to an undercover agent in El Jebel.

Both men were arrested and charged with felony possession and distribution of a controlled substance. They are being held in the Eagle County Jail on $50,000 bonds.

Neither man possessed legitimate immigration documents, and are also on a hold by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office.
