Cops in Atlantic City say two more people have been arrested on a street in the city that is no stranger to crime.
The Atlantic City Police Department says their detectives were conducting a surveillance operation in the first block of South Florida Avenue last Wednesday, June 22nd.
During this operation, detectives observed Alan Rebollao and Josue Saez loitering in the area and taking part in several suspected illegal narcotics transactions. Detective Christopher Dodson also had information that a male matching the description of Rebollao was in possession of a handgun.

Both Rebollao and Saez were allegedly found to be in possession of 58 grams of suspected cocaine and around 30 grams of suspected heroin.
Both were taken into custody without incident.
