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.

The evidence is being turned over to federal agents.
