SAN JOSE, Calif. State and federal agents arrested five people and seized an estimated $1 million in methamphetamine and other drugs during a series of raids across Northern California, authorities said Friday.

The raids in Menlo Park, San Jose, Modesto and other cities Thursday were the culmination of an 18-month investigation, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said. The raids netted 23 pounds of methamphetamine, 9 kilograms of cocaine, a shotgun, about $500,000 in cash and five vehicles, including a 1967 Corvette and a 2007 Cadillac Escalade, the DEA said.
