In a record-breaking drug bust, the Drug Enforcement Administration said on Thursday it seized approximately 1 million fake pills containing fentanyl in Inglewood, California, earlier this month.

The counterfeit pills were seized on July 5 during a raid of a home tied to a Los Angeles-area drug trafficking organization believed to be linked to Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, the DEA said. The seizure is the largest ever made by the DEA in California, according to the agency. The fake pills have an estimated street value of $15 million to $20 million.
