Chicago police say they have seized cocaine with a street value of $17.5 million — the largest find by the department so far this year.

Police narcotics officers on Wednesday displayed 42 packages of cocaine weighing 1 kilogram apiece, $12,000 in cash and seven guns. They say they arrested a member of one of the city’s most notorious street gangs, the Latin Kings, on charges of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

Police say the cocaine, guns and money were found in the trunk of the man’s vehicle.

Authorities say the cocaine was stuffed in boxes of soap that were perhaps put there to prevent police dogs from sniffing it out.
