KALISPELL — The Northwest Montana Drug Task Force has arrested two men in connection with a drug trafficking organization.

The Flathead County Sheriff's Officer reports Adan Bedal-Barajas and Santiago Marron -- both from California -- were arrested this week.

The two are now being held in the Flathead County Detention Center without bond pending drug charges.

Agents from the Northwest Montana Drug Task Force and the Flathead County Sheriff's Office contacted the two at a local motel on Thursday.

Flathead County Sheriff Brian Heino says five pounds of methamphetamine, over a pound of marijuana and a firearm were seized.
