BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say a drug bust in Brooklyn Center has netted 140 pounds of methamphetamine, the largest seizure of the drug in state history.

Forty-year-old Dolores Castillo and 27-year-old Francisco Silvestre-Martinez are both charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

The federal Drug Enforcement Agency and the Anoka Hennepin Drug Task Force seized the meth from a home in Brooklyn Center on Monday.

Castillo and Silvestre-Martinez were arrested at their home in Maplewood. Authorities say the two had two pounds of meth and $130,000 in cash on hand.

Authorities made several undercover purchases from a dealer in March and April and later learned that a home in Brooklyn Center was being used as a storage facility.

It’s unclear whether the two have attorneys.
