Police had received 116 calls for service over the last year in the neighborhood, according to Kaiser. Of those calls, 26 reports involved weapons.

Seven adults and two juveniles were arrested during the raid. They face various felony charges including felon in possession of a firearm and delivery of narcotics or cocaine.

Kaiser said officers seized six stolen handguns, 32 grams of crack cocaine, 1 gram of powder cocaine, a half-pound of marijuana, and Suboxone – which is used to treat opiate addiction.

More than $1,000 in cash was also seized by police.
