A four-month investigation led narcotics officers to a home on Menlo Drive Thursday night where they allegedly found 750 grams of crystal methamphetamine, officials said Friday.

Sgt. Scott Jackson, of the Tri-Net Narcotics Unit said the 13Ú4 pounds of drugs was worth about $125,000 on the street.

Officers arrested 28-year-old Salvador Mena Orozco, from Carson City, on suspicion of 13 felony counts of trafficking a controlled substance. Bail was set at $500,000. Also arrested was 27-year-old Diana Montero Viera, from Carson City, on suspicion of two counts of felony trafficking a controlled substance. Bail was set at $500,000. Both were in custody in the Carson City Jail.

The drugs were found in Apartment No. 24 at 2802 Menlo Drive.

A second search warrant was served at 3258 Dale Drive where another 466 grams, nearly 1 pound, of crystal methamphetamine and numerous firearms were alleged to have been found. No arrests were made at the Dale Drive address.
