About $100 million worth of PCP was seized this week in Los Angeles and Culver City in what authorities described as a major bust of a national drug-trafficking organization. Officials said they found huge amounts of PCP — totaling roughly 10 million individual doses, which in the Los Angeles area sell for between $10 and $20 each — at two local storage facilities and several other locations. Authorities also recovered nearly $400,000 in cash. Authorities believe the trafficking organization included at least 10 individuals locally and that it was distributing to Texas, New York and Washington, D.C., and other U.S. cities.

The Claremont Police Department has received $169,650 as its share of assets seized in a drug raid in a Sylmar warehouse last year. Almost 20 tons of cocaine, worth up to $6 billion on the street, and $10 million in cash were seized in the raid Sept. 28. Claremont received a portion of the money because it assisted as part of L.A. Impact, a regional drug enforcement task force involving 10 San Gabriel Valley cities. The effort has resulted in nearly 100 arrests.
