Drugs worth an estimated $1 million were seized and two suspects arrested on Tuesday by Huntington Beach Police Department detectives.

According to Jennifer Carey, public information officer for the HBPD, the investigation into a drug trafficking organization based out of Mexico has been ongoing through October.

Two men, ages 21 and 29, were arrested in the city of Bell. At that time, one of the suspects was allegedly in possession of 20 pounds of what police believe to be methamphetamine. After the arrest, detectives executed a search warrant at his home and recovered additional drugs and weapons.

They seized a total of 317 pounds of suspected “meth,” 17 kilos of suspected cocaine and fentanyl, and two handguns.

Suspect names and additional details are not being released while the investigation continues.

  1. From Mexico? More like from Wuhan, China where they manufacture fentanyl, via Mejico cartels. To get rid of the “undesirables” as in Americans who do drugs. We are at war. From many different directions. Including a sitting president who encourages border disrespect of our sovereignty. And farts long and loud when he’s with British royals. Lordy.
