26-year-old Lazaro Galaban-Brocard was arrested and charged with Possession of Schedule VI (marijuana) for sale, Possession of Schedule III (steroids), Possession of Schedule IV (Xanax), and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

19-year-old Broderick Olden was cited for Simple Possession of Schedule VI and Possession of Schedule III.
