Authorities in Southern California have broken up a methamphetamine ring that funneled drugs and money to and from Mexico through the cities of Ontario and Pomona.

Authorities arrested 17 people early Thursday, and have charged a total of 27 people in connection with the drug ring.

The methamphetamine came into the country in liquid form by plane, cars, and boats. Gang members recrystallized the drugs at an Ontario home.

A U.S. Attorney associated with the case said that dealers will selling several pounds of meth per day, at a profit of $9,000 per pound.

Numerous other suspects are still on the loose, but authorities believe they made a dent in this operation.
