According to reports, a drug bust in California’s Central Valley near Tulare County yielded upwards of $12 million worth of meth headed for Sacramento. 

The bust was part of a nine-month investigation with multiple law enforcement agencies, including the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Per CBS News, authorities seized: “nearly 1,000 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, 14 firearms, and nearly $50,000. There were two methamphetamine conversion laboratories with multiple 55-gallon drums filled with a total of 4,000 pounds of liquid methamphetamine in various stages of conversion.”

Officials say the drugs originated from Mexico and were brought into California to Tulare County, and would then be transported into Sacramento County and the greater Northern California region. 

The seizure also resulted in the arrest of three suspects: Armando Rosales Gonzalez, 35, of Tulare; Rogelio Ceniceros Flores, 37, of Jalisco, Mexico; and Carlos Bobadilla, 39, of Tulare. They will each face federal charges.
