SAN JOSE (CBS / AP) — Federal drug agents said they have seized an estimated $34 million worth of methamphetamine from a San Jose apartment.

A spokesman for the Drug Enforcement Administration said the discovery of 750 pounds of meth comes after Palo Alto police detectives had gone to the apartment on Thursday as part of an investigation into stolen iPads.

DEA Special Agent Casey Rettig said the detectives found the meth as they searched the home for the stolen iPads.

When DEA agents were called in, they sent in a special laboratory team. DEA investigators believe the apartment was being used as a methamphetamine conversion laboratory, where methamphetamine was being converted to an “ice” or to crystal form.

Three people were arrested. Their names have not been released.

A number of stolen items believed to have been stolen in Palo Alto were also recovered from the apartment.

    The point needs to be made that these people are stupid careless criminals that a stolen iPad investigation would result in the discovery of this huge amount of Meth.

    The DEA is running a theft ring that involves the stealing from suspects created under fabricated evidence.

    Looks like a connection.
