Is This The Saddest Weapons Bust In Chicago Police History?
The Chicago Police Department is used to taking some serious firepower off the streets: Glock pistols, sawed-off shotguns, even AR-15 and AK-47 rifles.
Not every weapons bust gets the big guns, though. Take the fruits of a search warrant executed Wednesday at a home on the city’s southwest side:

“Great intel” led to the discovery of a weapons and drug stash fit for the Joker, as one Twitter user put it.

The odd bust produced a hefty sack of marijuana–just in time for the unofficial 4/20 holiday–and two pistols straight from the history books. A single-action six-shooter appears to have been the owner’s primary weapon, backed up by a deadly-yet-elegant, pearl-handled Saturday night special.
Twitter users responded to CPD’s tweet with some helpful suggestions about who might own such an arsenal.
