2 Arrested in Longview Drug Raid

A big bust by Gregg County drug agents has netted over a hundred pounds of marijuana and thousands of dollars in cash, and has landed two people in jail.

CODE agents raided a Longview home Friday morning where they arrested 49 year old Mexican national Bonifacio "Cowboy" Arriaga and 33 year old Christiana Irons on trafficking charges. Agents confiscated over 100 pounds of marijuana, several guns and cars, and over $55,000 dollars in cash.

Investigators say the pair had been moving a significant amount of drugs. Arriaga was previously deported for drug charges, but we're told had returned to the U.S. illegally.

He remains in jail on $25,000. Irons has bonded out.
