CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Chicago Police found two guns and more than 160 rounds of live ammunition hidden in a Gresham neighborhood garbage can Tuesday on the South Side.

Tactical officers patrolling the Gresham District were flagged down by a person who told them the firearms were stashed in a trash can in a nearby alleyway, according to a police statement.

The officers found a rifle, shotgun, scope and the rounds of ammunition inside a plastic trash bag, police said.

“This is an important example of how members of the community can make an impact on crime where they live,” police Supt. Garry McCarthy said in the statement.

Chicago Police did not release the block address at which the guns were found.
