Chicago police have seized millions of dollars-worth of drugs and cash in a pair of drug busts.

In one bust they recovered about $3.9 million worth of cocaine, 1,077 pounds of marijuana, five cars and over $1.5 million in cash, police said.

Officers also seized guns, a jet-ski and a boat.

"This is a continuation of that promise and a further demonstration that groups who engage in violence in this city will suffer consequences as we methodically work to eliminate the guns, gangs, and drugs on our city's streets," Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said in a press release.
