BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones tweeted that a MOAB, or ""mother of all bombs," should be used on the Mexican drug cartel after a large amount of drugs were seized in Dayton.

Authorities said four men suspected of drug trafficking were arrested after police seized drugs worth a street value of about $2 million.

State Attorney General Mike DeWine and Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer announced the arrests and drug seizures Thursday in Dayton. Their statement said the suspects are believed to be associated with a cartel in Mexico.

Most of the drugs seized by the Miami Valley Bulk Smuggling Task Force were heroin and fentanyl, in addition to some marijuana and about $120,000 in cash.

Authorities said three suspects are from the Dayton area and the fourth is from Phoenix, Arizona. All four are charged with possession and trafficking of drugs and money laundering.

Officials said the investigation is ongoing, and more arrests are expected.
