Chicago's police say their narcotics unit has arrested 24 suspects for illegal guns and drug activity.

Superintendent Garry McCarthy announced the arrests as part of the department's effort to target the activities of known street gangs.

He says their work has effectively dismantled two illegal drug markets and resulted in the seizure of about 1,300 illegal guns in the first 10 weeks of 2013.
