AMSTERDAM, N.Y. -- Two houses were raided early Saturday morning in Amsterdam. A two month investigation ended with the arrests of two men in the McElwain and Wilson avenues area, police said.

Jorge Rivera already spent time in state prison for selling heroin. When he was arrested Saturday, he had 100 bags of the drug with a street value of about $3,000, police said.

Luis Rodriguez was arrested for selling cocaine. He had one gram and two gram bags of the drug with a total street value of about $1,000, police said.

The sting was staged by about twenty-five members of the Montgomery County Task Force.

The two men are being arraigned in Amsterdam City Court. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
