On Tuesday, July 13, at approximately 8pm, detectives from the Long Beach Police Department’s (LBPD) Drug Investigations Section removed 139 pounds of narcotics from the streets, and arrested three individuals in connection with the case.
After a yearlong investigation into the distribution of narcotics in Long Beach, detectives were led to two locations: one in Long Beach and one in Compton. Both locations were searched and yielded the large supply of methamphetamine and cocaine for distribution.
The Long Beach location, in the area of Magnolia Avenue and Pacific Coast Highway, yielded 126 pounds of methamphetamine, and the Compton location, in the area of Santa Fe Avenue and Rosecrans Boulevard, yielded 13 pounds of cocaine, with a combined street value of more than 10 million dollars. This is a record amount of methamphetamine recovered in one drug bust in the history of the LBPD.
Due to the ongoing investigation, the three individuals arrested are only being identified as two Long Beach residents, a 40-year-old male and 37-year-old female, and a 46-year-old male resident of Compton.
The LBPD encourages the community to call and report drug activity to its Narcotics Hotline at (562) 570-7125. Callers can remain anonymous or leave their contact information if they would like a detective to call them back.
Anyone who may have additional information about this case is urged to call the Drug Investigations Section at (562) 570-7221.
