DEA seizes record amount of meth in Southern California stash houses

The US Drug Enforcement Administration recovered over 2,200 pounds of methamphetamine earlier this month in Southern California, the agency’s largest-ever domestic seizure of the drug, officials said Wednesday.

The agency executed the bust on Oct. 2 at stash houses in Riverside County, east of Los Angeles, with ties to the Sinaloa cartel, the DEA said in a statement.

“The largest DEA domestic seizure of methamphetamine in history is a significant blow to the cartels, but more importantly it is a gigantic victory for communities throughout Southern California and the United States who have had to deal with the torrent of methamphetamine coming into their neighborhoods,” DEA Acting Administrator Timothy Shea said at a Wednesday press conference.

Along with 2,224 pounds of meth, the DEA also seized 893 pounds of cocaine and 13 pounds of heroin.

The DEA’s bust was just one of two massive meth seizures by federal authorities in October.

The US Customers and Border Protection on Oct. 9 recovered 3,014 pounds of the drug from a truck crossing from Mexico into the United States at San Diego’s Otay Mesa.
