Also recovered was $389,000.00 in United States currency.

The investigation stemmed from information received from Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agents in Los Angeles. L.A. IMPACT investigators developed the case and during the month-long investigation, L.A. IMPACT investigators learned that a suspect with links to a Los Angeles street gang was actively involved with the manufacturing of PCP.
