The DeKalb County Police Department's Narcotics Unit removed $128 million in drugs from the streets in 2013.

The announcement was made during a news conference Friday morning.

The drugs include meth, powder cocaine, crack-cocaine and marijuana.

"We have not seen a seizure over a one year period, this huge, probably in the last five or six years," said Dr. Cedric Alexander, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of the DeKalb County Public Safety Department.

Narcotics detectives also confiscated weapons and vehicles specially designed to conceal illegal drugs.

Additionally, 989 arrests were made in connection with the drug investigations conducted by the specialized 30-person unit.
