During a recent sweep by the Jackson County Drug Task Force and the Jackson County Sheriff's Department, officers recovered 22 pounds of meth whose street value was closer to $2 million.

Authorities received a tip about suspicious activity around a home near East 43rd Street and Sterling Avenue. That tip led to the investigation and subsequent bust.

Dan Cummings, officer in charge for the task force, said the drugs were found hidden inside a fender.

Two adult men, including an illegal immigrant, were taken into custody and charged. A 16-year-old at the home was turned over to juvenile authorities.

Jackson County prosecutors said 20-year-old Valdemar Rivera-Madrigal, of Kansas City, and 23-year-old Cesar Omar Rivera-Valencia, of Montebello, CA, now face charges of second-degree drug trafficking, a class A felony under Missouri law.

"This a major blow for the methamphetamine supply in Jackson County and the Kansas City metro area," Cummings said. "When you take $2 million off the streets in one swoop, you put a huge dent in it."

Prosecutors requested the men's bond be set at $100,000.
