$1 million of meth found in suitcases in a Washington forest

The drugs were found in suitcases in a heavily brushy area of the forest.

(CNN)Two suitcases full of meth were discovered in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest on Monday.

The drugs, weighing in at 186 pounds, were found when Okanogan County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit assisted Homeland Security with a smuggling investigation in the forest near the town of Mazama.
"The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest encompasses more than 4-million acres in Washington state and stretches north to south from the Canadian border to the Goat Rocks Wilderness -- a distance of about 180 miles," the Forest Service says on its website.
Sgt. Gene Davis and his K-9 partner Gunner located the two suitcases in a heavily brushy area of the national forest, according to police. Authorities say the street value of the drugs is estimated to be around $1 million.
    "Cocaine has been the main narcotic purchased by detectives over the last few years but methamphetamine is a close second," according to the Okanogan County Sheriff's Office's website. "The task force also works border cases involving smuggling, usually marijuana cases."
      Gunner and Sgt. Davis have been a working as team for six years, according to police.
      No word on if police have suspects of interest in this case.
