The Baltimore Police Department seizes guns and drugs, then Tweets out pictures of the findings almost everyday. But a Thursday night haul might need its own Evidence Room. Approximately 12 kg of heroin and $825,000 were seized in a Thursday night raid at a home in the 2500 block of Oakley Ave.

Police Commissioner Anthony Batts announced the raid at a press conference, where he was positioned conveniently behind the drugs and money. Together, the goods value around $3 million.  According to WBAL-TV, they all belonged 41-year-old Shawn Hearn, who was arrested in the bust. Police believe the convicted felon is a major heroin supplier in West Baltimore.

Police credited the raid to Operation Ceasefire, a program introduced in Baltimore earlier this year that is designed to identify offenders, and offer help to leave a life of violence behind.
