During the Independence Day weekend, El Monte police department had good reason to celebrate. A burglar call lead police to the biggest drug bust the city has ever seen.
Police were called to the 2500 block of Continental Ave. to investigate a burglary that was in progress. When police arrived at the scene they found a U-Haul truck with four men and one teenage boy. They were wearing gardening gloves, masks and had weed clippers. In front of what looked like an abandoned warehouse.
