MADERA, Calif. (AP) — Drug agents searching a Central California home say they seized 176 pounds of crystal methamphetamine.

The California Department of Justice said Friday the drugs found in the Madera home could be worth over $1 million on the street, depending on the purity. Nobody was arrested, but agents say they also found $58,000 in cash, and their investigation isn't finished.

Other evidence found in the home leads investigators to believe the meth was smuggled into the United States from Mexico as a liquid and then made into a crystal at the home.

Agent Tatum King of Homeland Security Investigations said the find surely dealt a significant blow to the criminal organization behind the operation.
