SAN BERNARDINO (AP) — Authorities say they’ve seized more than 450 pounds of methamphetamine in San Bernardino County and arrested two men.

The California attorney general’s office says agents with the state Department of Justice and county sheriff’s detectives went to a home in the city of Hinkley last Wednesday to bust an alleged meth lab.

They seized 206 pounds of crystal methamphetamine along with 250 gallons of liquid methamphetamine that authorities say could produce 1,250 pounds of crystal meth.

Authorities say the drugs seized are worth more than $7 million on the street.

Jorge Valdez and Miguel Sanchez, both of Hinkley, were arrested and remained jailed Monday. They’ve been charged with making and possessing meth for sale.

It’s not immediately clear whether they have attorneys.
