Rockford Police Confiscate AK 47 in Drug Bust

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Rockford police confiscated an AK 47 when they brought down an alleged drug dealer.

They arrested Darrell Thomas, 26, after a brief foot chase in the 800 block of Buckbee.

Authorities say he was selling drugs out of two homes in Rockford. In total they say they found 40 bags of heroin, 70 bags of crack cocaine and pot.

Police say Thomas is a felon, so that AK 47 is illegal. He's in jail on a $100,000 bond.
