Arlington police arrested two men Friday, Feb. 28, charging them with drug violations after they allegedly attempted to sell methamphetamine to an undercover officer.

According to a press release, in mid-February, Arlington police became aware of an individual, later identified as Brown, who was believed to be selling drugs in town, which led to an investigation into the allegations.  An undercover officer made contact with Brown and Babbitt and set up a meeting inside a Gardner Street apartment on Feb. 28. Following the meeting, Brown and Babbitt were arrested by two officers.

Police found 15.5 grams of methamphetaminein in Brown's possession at the time of his arrest.

Brown and Babbitt were arraigned in Cambridge District Court on Monday, March 2.
