Sheriff's Deputies on an undercover narcotics operation discover a murder-for-hire plot.
The sheriff's department says an undercover deputy befriended a group of teenage drug dealers.
Four of them were busted for selling drugs to the agent.
But two men, 21 year-old Luis Gerardo Garcia and 18 year-old Luis Gerardo Prieto took it a step further.
We're told they tried to get the undercover deputy to kill a 40 year-old San Elizario woman.
Both are now charged with criminal solicitation of capital murder.
