PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Attorney General Marty Jackley says authorities have seized about 2 pounds of heroin and roughly 5 pounds of methamphetamine.

Jackley said Wednesday that authorities seized the black tar heroin July 11 from a 19-year-old man living in the Brookings area.

Subsequent investigation led authorities to seize the crystal meth July 13 in Brookings. Jackley says charges are pending.

He says the estimated street value of the drugs is more than $500,000.

The joint law enforcement operation was conducted by the Brookings Police Department, the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office, the Watertown Police Department, and the state Division of Criminal Investigation.
