Trying to be the next Walter White got 2 people sitting in jail right now.
The Los Angeles Times reports that California Department of Justice officials have arrested two alleged drug dealers for possession of over 200 pounds of meth, valued at over $7.2 million.
Officials say the bust happened in San Bernardino County in the city of Hinkley last Wednesday.
The alleged dealers, Jorge Valdez, 34, and Miguel Angel Sanchez, 24, have been charged with two felony counts of manufacture and possession for sale of methamphetamine. Both are currently locked up in county jail on $1 million bail each.
“This bust significantly reduces the amount of methamphetamine on our streets,” California Attorney General Kamala Harris said in a statement. “California is the national epicenter of its trafficking and distribution, so I have made it a priority of the California Department of Justice’s task forces to stop those who sell and manufacture this debilitating drug.”
