Up to 80 pounds of cocaine and methamphetamine were seized by L.A. County sheriff's deputies following a high-speed chase from Lynwood to Santa Fe Springs Tuesday night. The pursuit began after the suspect fled from detective surveillance in Lynwood around 9:25 p.m. and ended when the man crashed into a parked car at a Santa Fe Springs intersection.

Sheriff's deputies found a duffel bag containing 50 to 80 pounds of cocaine and/or methamphetamine, according to reports. That's as much as 36 kilos. The suspect was arrested and taken to the hospital (in custody) with injuries.
