Deputies and police, some armed with handguns, others with assault rifles, took up positions on center from Fourth to Fifth street shortly after 3 p.m. and waited for the men to leave a business.
When they did, the officers took them down at gunpoint, handcuffed them and searched them, and two motorcycles parked in front of the store.
Both men were taken away in handcuffs.
