Alexandria Police arrested seven people and seized $158,000 in cash, guns and drugs last week, as part of an ongoing investigation that resulted in eight search warrants being executed in the region.

Police would not reveal the identities of the suspects arrested or any further details, and only listed what was seized in a Friday press release. Seized items included:

  • U.S. currency totaling $157,997
  • 27 pounds of marijuana
  • 11 firearms (including three semi-automatic rifles)
  • Ammunition
  • Drug-packaging materials
  • Prescription pills
  • Cell phones and computers
  • Two money counters
  • 16 grams of suspected cocaine

“We want to commend the excellent planning, execution and police work of everyone involved,” said Police Chief Michael L. Brown. “This is just one example of the Alexandria Police Department working to ensure the safety of our City and community.”
