FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Fresno police have seized more than 24 pounds of methamphetamine worth at least $200,000 after a six-month investigation led them to a drug bust.

The Fresno Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1QLqTPx ) that Chief Jerry Dyer announced that on Tuesday a 40-year-old man was arrested after he agreed to sell the drugs to undercover detectives. The man will face federal drug trafficking charges.

The six-month investigation was a joint effort by Fresno police and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration into methamphetamine trafficking operations in the city.

Dyer says the methamphetamine seized Tuesday would have been sold to drug dealers, who would have altered it and distributed it throughout the city, flooding Fresno with the drug.
