Two men were arrested Monday in a drug bust that netted more than $19 million worth of illegal drugs in the Little Village neighborhood.

Forty-one-year-old Lorenzo Barrios and 39-year-old Anastacio Esparza are charged with drug possession.

Police say they stopped a minivan near 28th and Hamlin and found a duffle bag full of cocaine inside.

Officers were then led to a house near 26th and Springfield where they say they uncovered a huge stash of cocaine. In all, police seized nearly 350 pounds.
