More than 140 pounds of meth were found Friday as drug investigators served search warrants in Modesto and Brentwood.

DEA agents, both federal and from Stanislaus County,  say the multi-location bust came as a part of a “long-term” investigation.

Leonor Sarabia, 44, Estelo Chiadez, 34, and Humberto Olguin, 22, were arrested and booked for conspiracy, possession of methamphetamine for sale, transportation of drugs and possession of a controlled substance while armed.

Another person, 23-year-old Vanessa Santos, was arrested for child endangerment.

Along with the 145 pounds of meth, agents say they also found a half-pound of heroin and $6,000 in cash.
