PHOENIX — The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration made a major drug bust in Phoenix last week, hauling in 142 pounds of methamphetamine, 60,000 fentanyl pills and 10.5 pounds of cocaine.

The two agencies also found one rabbit’s foot.

A suspect was arrested in the bust, which took place Thursday at a home near Van Buren and 41st streets in Phoenix. The name of the person has not been released because the two agencies are still investigating.

PCSO also declined to describe why the office was involved in the bust because of the on-going investigation.

Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb speaks about a major drug bust the office participated in with the DEA in Phoenix.
