OGDEN -- A meth bust in Ogden netted the arrests of six illegal immigrants who will now be deported to Mexico.

According to the Standard-Examiner, the men were taken into custody Thursday when members of the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force -- along with help from the FBI -- surprised them outside a convenience store on 21st Street in Ogden.

The paper reports they were found to be in possession of more than two pounds of meth.

Luis Perez, 25; Miguel Castillo, 25; Refugio Lopez, 35; Leonardo Santiago, 18; Nicolas Perez-Llaanez, 35; and Jesus Bautista-Infante, 37, were all taken into custody on charges of possession with intent to sell. In addition, four of the men were charged with resisting arrest and one faces a firearm charge.
