Police conducted an early morning raid and arrested two brothers – 25-year-old Gilmar Perez and 23-year-old Israel Perez, accused of having 110 grams of cocaine, a digital scale, $3,500 in cash and bags to pack drugs.

The blinds were shut and the door locked their house on West 21st Street in Huntington Station today, located across the street from a middle school and just a few blocks from a high school.

The raid was made possible by a search warrant, according to Suffolk County Police Commissioner Tim Sini, who says the department has received more than 240 anonymous tips since establishing a drug hotline on March 31.

“Under the new initiative, we've executed 67 search warrants resulting in the arrests of 149 people, the seizure of kilogram quantities of drugs and dozens of weapons,” Sini said.

Just a few miles away, a second raid was conducted this morning near the Huntington train station.

Inside that house, officers say they found a few grams of coke, a scale and more small baggies commonly used for distribution.

Ivan Oscar Martinez, 34, was placed under arrest. This alleged drug house, too, is just a few feet from a school.
