CHICAGO — An apartment complex cleaning crew made a wild discovery as they cleared out a unit in Ravenswood on Tuesday morning, according to Chicago police.

It happened around 8:30 a.m. in the 1800 block of West Argyle.

Officers responded to the building to handle a call of found property in a residence, a Chicago police spokesperson said. When they arrived, they found “multiple firearms, [ammunition] magazines, and suspect narcotics,” according to the spokesperson.

A picture of the cache tweeted by the Lincoln (20th) District showed a shotgun, three rifles, three handguns, a stack of cash, boxes of ammunition, and several ammo magazines, including two high-capacity drum-style magazines.

Police inventoried the property, but no arrests have been made, CPD said.
