GLENDALE — Police seized $1.2 million worth of methamphetamine at a Sunland home early Thursday after investigating a truck they stopped on Foothill Boulevard.
Four people — Alejandro Garcia, 32, of Norwalk, Marcos Perez, 34, of Sunland, William Magaña, 31 of Fontana and Claudia Seseña, 34, of Sunland — were arrested in connection with possessing the 16 pounds of meth, Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.
"It's coming to our community and we got to cut it off at the head," Lorenz said. "We got to find a source."
The drugs were likely intended for distribution to residents in the foothills and communities to the east, he said.
Glendale police officers stopped a maroon Dodge Ram at 2 a.m. Thursday on Foothill Boulevard after Garcia, the driver, allegedly committed several traffic violations, Lorenz said.
Garcia and his passenger, Magaña, could not provide proof of ownership for the truck or say who it belonged to, but they said it was going to be dropped off at a home in Sunland, Lorenz said.
