Officers found and seized more than 160 pounds of meth in labs throughout parts of the Valley and eastern L.A. County, reports the Daily News.

The drugs were found after officers arrested 25-year-old Alan Tamayo-Montoya on Wednesday night, who's booked on suspicion of possession of meth with the intent to sell, and who authorities believe was running drugs for a trafficking ring. The labs were uncovered in Van Nuys and Pomona and were large-scale.

Tamayo-Montoya is being held on $2 million bail.
