"These two suspectsare very dangerous criminals, and residents can sleep peacefully in their homes tonight knowing they are safely in custody. While they were fugitives from the law,they were selling illegal narcotics out of a house inLakeland. They had several different weapons at their disposal, and given Aguilar's past history, he wasn't afraid to use them. These two suspects will hopefully remain behind bars for a very, very long time." - Sheriff Grady Judd
