A police raid of a West Side townhome uncovered a cache of guns and tens of thousands of dollars worth of illegal drugs. The arsenal included a couple high powered rifle, six handguns and several rounds of ammunition.

Police say the crack cocaine and marijuana they found in the home has a street value of nearly $40,000.

Investigators believe that street gangs were using the home on North Pine and Washington as a distribution point for illegal drugs in the neighborhood.

One person is in custody. Charges are pending.
