The bust came after neighbors complained about public drug use, fights breaking out and needles in their yards, according to court records obtained by the Post.
Last year, Dept. of Justice spokesman Thom Mrozek said that authorities observed the suspect “distributing suspected chemicals to several locations, including a building in Long Beach, where a clandestine PCP lab was discovered last May.”
Coast Guard officials say they have seized $38.5 million worth of cocaine from suspected smugglers, some of whom evaded arrest, off Central and South America.
He’s one of six people, including doctors, who were arrested on suspicion of illegally distributing prescription drugs as part of a DEA operation.
The bust was at a string of homes along Alamitos Avenue where detectives served four separate search warrants, police said.
The meth and other drugs were hidden in metal boxes labelled as loudspeakers, according to authorities.
Police said the ice-cream truck was a front where detectives found thousands of dollars worth of drugs in North Long Beach.
Long Beach police seized nearly 90 pounds of cocaine and arrested a Canadian national during a traffic stop yesterday, authorities said.
Patrol officers with the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) recently seized 52 pounds of methamphetamine and $24,035 in cash after they conducted two unrelated traffic stops last Thursday night, authorities announced.
