UNIX find command - using multiple -name options

Hi all,

What am trying do is search for a directory that is owned by cm that only exists in a path that has a particular directory

ex: what I'm using now is
find . -user cm -name '*.rel' -type d -exec ls -dl {} \;

This is giving me stuff like this

I only want to see the .rel directories that are a sub-directory of foo2, not foo1

Is there any way to do this? Thanks in advanced.

find . -user cm -name '*.rel' -type d -path '*/foo2/*' -exec ls -dl {} \;

# 3  
Thanks. That worked.
