A major drug ring was broken up by Anaheim police Saturday as they arrested 22 adults and one juvenile and confiscated 70 pounds of methamphetamines with a reported street value of $5 million during raids in three Orange County cities.
The seven-week investigation was conducted by Anaheim police in conjunction with officers from the California Department of Justice, the California Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement and the Fullerton Police Department.
In Anaheim, seven suspects were arrested during a raid on three apartments in a complex at 2611 E. Park Lane, police said. The suspects face charges ranging from possessing methamphetamines with intent to sell to having outstanding arrest warrants.
In Orange, nine suspects were arrested at 263 and 265 N. Holly St., where a methamphetamine laboratory producing about 30 pounds of the drug was operating, police said. The suspects were charged with manufacturing methamphetamines and possessing marijuana with intent to sell.
