A drug task force announced one of the biggest drug raids in the history of Contra Costa County, along with 17 arrests.

They released a picture that shows just part of what authorities recovered: 475 pounds of methamphetamine worth $18 million -- smuggled in by a Mexican drug cartel -- guns, cars, and motorcycles, plus nearly $1 million in cash.

Investigators say the suspects in the case are connected to a Norteno street gang.
