GLENDALE, AZ — MCSO detectives earlier this month seized $500,000 worth of meth, heroin, and fentanyl from a Glendale home.

Court records show that a Lake Havasu man was arrested for heroin possession and offered to cooperate with detectives to expose a drug ring in Glendale.

Earlier this month, the man lead investigators to a home in Glendale near 91st and Northern avenues where detectives reportedly found 50 pounds of meth, 342 grams of heroin, and over 2,000 fentanyl pills.

Investigators say the drugs were all packaged for sale. They also allegedly found $23,000 in cash, various weapons, and several vials believed to contain steroids.

Court records show that the total value of all the drugs is about $500,000.

MCSO arrested Lawrence Borquez, 43, Michael Jose Borquez, 53 and Tiffany Escobedo Rodriguez, 31. Investigators say they gave the man who was cooperating money to purchase the heroin. However, before he gave the heroin he purchased to the investigators, he allegedly stuffed a baggie of heroin down his pants to keep for himself.

All four of the suspects have been charged with multiple drug-related crimes.
