(ABC 6 News) - The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office arrested two people in connection with an early May drug investigation Thursday. 

On May 2, deputies pulled over 36-year-old Marina Garza and 29-year-old Jose Aguilera, both of Rochester, after surveilance efforts indicated they may be involved with local drug trade.

The sheriff's office seized the vehicle they were in, a 2007 Chevy Taho, awaiting a warrant. Aguilera and Garza were released at the time.

After a warrant was secured, Capt. James Schueller said the office found about a half-pound of methamphetamine, a small amount of marijuana, and related drug paraphernalia in the vehicle.

On Thursday, May 18, the sheriff's office arrested both suspects. They face charges of felony 1st-degree controlled substance sale--methamphetamine, and felony 1st-degree controlled substance possession--methamphetamine.
