Glendale police arrested three people and seized 37 pounds of cocaine last week after a two-day investigation that led to Hollywood, where undercover officers made the largest drug purchase in the department's history.
Roger Boulos, 32, of Woodland Hills and Joel Sarlot, 30, of Los Angeles were arrested on the corner of Highland Avenue and Sunset Boulevard late Wednesday after selling 35 pounds of cocaine to police for an undisclosed amount of cash, Sgt. Dean Durand said.
Early Thursday, police arrested Michelle Waites, 25, while serving a search warrant at the Woodland Hills home she shared with Boulos, Durand said.
Police confiscated an additional two ounces of cocaine there and two pounds while serving a search warrant at Sarlot's home in Hollywood, Durand said.
