A sheriff's undercover operation broke up a drug deal in south El Paso.
The strike team was keeping an eye on a home in the 200 block of South Copia after reports of dealing.
Thursday, they went up to the home and met 42-year-old Alberto Gonzalez.
When 19-year-old Jose Zamudio showed up, deputies say he told one under cover agent he was there to "deliver." They found Zamudio with nearly 9 grams of cocaine on him. Both were arrested and jailed.
