A man described by police as a 'meth distribution leader' was arrested in Tolleson on Monday.
According to court documents, police raided the home of 25-year-old German Valenzuela Corrales, near 99th Avenue and Broadway Road.
Officers allegedly found Corrales ready to leave with 56 pounds of packaged meth worth over $100,000, in his car.
Police say they also located additional meth, heroin, and cocaine in the house. They also allegedly found $14,000 in cash.
Police described Corrales as, "the leader of a Phoenix-based methamphetamine distribution cell, believed to be responsible for the distribution of approximately 50 pounds of meth a month."
Corrales, who is in the United States illegally, reportedly told police that he has been distributing illegal drugs in Arizona for the past 2 and a half years. He said he was saving money for a medical procedure in Mexico.
He has been charged on multiple drug-related charges.
