Meth -- 35 Pounds Worth -- Seized in Inglewood Drug Bust
This is your face on meth.
Cops Inglewood say they seized 35 pounds -- 35! -- in a meth bust this week.
The crystal methamphetamine was valued at $1.7 million. That's enough cracker crack to feed an Inland Empire biker gang for like a year. What it was doing on the 'Wood is anyone's guess.
And guess is what you'll have to do because ...
... the Inglewood PD is being pretty mum about the whole thing.

Lt. James Madia would only confirm that two men suspected of trafficking the drug were arrested yesterday and that $54,000 in cash was also confiscated as part of the operation.
The drug was said to be in the more-pure and arguably highly prized (at least among those who like dope better than their teeth) "ice" format.
Perhaps the reason for the secrecy is that police say the investigation is ongoing and other suspects are being checked out.
We have a call into Inglewood authorities to see if we can get some more 411 on this speedy caper.
