Diners at a local restaurant encountered a temporary delay in food service Sunday morning after a narcotics search warrant was served at the establishment. Sources say agents with District 16 Drug Task Force along with the assistance of Poteau Police Department, Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Shady Point Police Department K9â€™s unit swarmed Los 3 Amigos located at 2811 N. Broadway in Poteau at approximately noon on Sunday.
Two people were arrested and an undisclosed amount of methamphetamines
located inside the restaurant was seized by
agents. Luis Martinez-Ayalla, 29, of Poteau, and David Martinezâ€“Martinez, 23, of Howe, are both being held on charges of delivery of a
