"The narcotics estimated street value approximately 18 thousand dollars. The weapons, they're all high end weapons, I'm not a big gun expert, but it's a substantial amount of money for guns," said James O'Grady, Chicago Police Department.
A 43-year- old gang leader is the police department's prime suspect. They say he is a source of drugs and guns in the neighborhood. The search for him continues this afternoon.
The bust happened not too far from several schools, including Fenger High School.
