Chicago police seized more than 30 guns and a supply of drugs while executing a search warrant Friday just outside the city’s northwest side.
The seizure puts total illegal guns off the street at 4,230 so far this year, the department said in a statement.
Officers identified the location a drug dealer had been selling guns and stashing guns. They worked with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on the investigation.
Anthony Riccio, Chicago PD’s chief of organized crime, said officers are doing what they can to keep violence down but “the confiscation of guns like these demonstrates the need for stricter gun laws.”
“For every gun we take off the street, we have the potential to save another life and make our neighborhoods safer,” he said.
