aw enforcement officials in Nebraska announced that they collected over $800,000 worth of meth and arrested two suspects in a drug operation this week.

Javier Reynosa-Flores, 26, and 27-year-old Jorge Montellano, both from Coachella, California, were taken into custody for possession of meth with intent to deliver, WOWT reported.

The Nebraska State Patrol worked with the Central Nebraska Drug and Safe Streets Task Force to carry out the bust.

They had received a tip that a large shipment of drugs might be traveling through Nebraska, which resulted in the seizure and arrests on Interstate 80 on Wednesday.

A third suspect was interviewed and released but is still considered to be a person of interest in the ongoing probe.
