From The Baltimore Sun’s coverage of last week’s massive takedown of alleged drug dealers in the city:

Officers executing 40 search warrants confiscated four guns, 5 pounds of marijuana and 5 grams of raw heroin, according to Bealefeld.
“I’m confident we’ve made a section of Baltimore much safer,” the commissioner said.

Wait . . . what!?! You bust 63 of the city’s most savage drug dealers, kick in everybody’s doors, take down the organization from “top to bottom,” as the DEA guy says in the same story, and you end up with just five grams?

And only four guns?
