CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Over 60 guns were taken off Chicago streets since Friday, according to Anthony Guglielmi, chief communications officer of the Chicago Police.

Among the seized weapons, two guns and bags of what appear to be marijuana were taken during an investigation that began last week on the city's West Side after officers executed a search warrant on the home of a convicted felon, Guglielmi said on Twitter.

On Oct. 5, Police found drugs and weapons in a raid at a home on the 6500 block of N. Mozart in Little India. Guglielmi said the raid arrested three convicted felons who were not allowed to possess firearms.
