UNION CITY - Two illegal aliens were arrested in Union City and indicted on federal drug charges, and for illegal re-entry after being deported.

KYTN reported that the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee, Michael Dunavant, says a task force made up of DEA special agents, along with the Union City Police Department, arrested the two men in an early morning raid on August 30th.

The men, 42-year-old Christino Alcazar-Ortiz and 37-year old Armando Alcazar-Ortiz, both of Union City, were said to be owners of the Mi Tierra Caliente restaurant on First Street in Union City. 

According to Union City Police Chief Perry Barfield, the arrests are the result of a year long investigation into a crystal methamphetamine drug operation at the restaurant.
