A tip led Chicago police late Sunday to a West Side warehouse where they seized an estimated $700,000 of high-end marijuana. One person was taken into custody.
Police executed a search warrant at the warehouse at 5101 W. Lake St., which they described as an unlicensed auto body shop.
Harrison District tactical officers found about 115 pounds of marijuana, and also seized eight handguns and a shotgun from the shop and the home of the shop's owner, police said. One of the guns was stolen. Police also found a quantity of ammunition.
"Our tactical guys had a better day than the Bears," said Sgt. Edward Sullins. "We were able to develop information from a source and obtain a search warrant. Our guys found a large amount of high-end pot, probably worth just under $1 million on the street." Police later lowered that estimate to $700,000.
