LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Authorities in Douglas County say they've seized 25 pounds of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of $1 million.

Lawrence police tell 6News Lawrence the seizure was made last week. Few other details about the case were released Monday because the investigation continues.

Police Sgt. Trent McKinley says authorities believe the meth came from Mexican producers and was meant for distribution in Douglas County. He says cash, cocaine, other drugs and a handgun were also seized.

The evidence is being turned over to federal agents.
