LOS ANGELES - Burbank police officers serving a warrant in Sun Valley found 10 pounds of methamphetamine with a street value of about half a million dollars hidden in a baby crib, but the suspect they were looking for was gone, authorities said today.
The warrant was served on Thursday in the 8500 block of Glenoaks Boulevard by personnel assigned to the Narcotics Unit and Gang Enforcement Team, Burbank police Lt. Eduardo Ruiz said.
"The narcotics and a shotgun were found hidden in a baby crib inside the residence," Ruiz said in a statement. "Investigators believe the suspect in the case is involved with the distribution of narcotics to other drug dealers in the city of Burbank."
The identity of the suspect was not released.
The investigation was continuing.
