Congratulations! It's a...half million dollars worth of meth?! Burbank police officers found 10 pounds of methamphetamine with a street value of an estimated $500,000, along with a shotgun, inside a baby's crib in a Sun Valley home, but the suspect they were looking for was nowhere to be found.

The officers were serving a search warrant Thursday, according to City News Service. "Investigators believe the suspect in the case is involved with the distribution of narcotics to other drug dealers in the city of Burbank," according to Burbank police Lt. Eduardo Ruiz.

The investigation remains ongoing.
