ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The St. Louis police department posted the fruits of a hot-spot policing effort to Facebook.

The department writes, “After fleeing from officers in the hot-spot initiative area Monday night, three suspects were taken into custody. Further investigation led to the recovery of an AK-47, AR 15 pistol, Tech 9 and two Ruger 9mm pistols as well as a large quantity of suspected heroin, marijuana and a large amount of cash. This illustrates just one of many successful stops during this week’s hot-spot initiative. Hot-spot policing works!”
