A year-long fed and local undercover sting in the nation’s capitol netted $7.2 million in cocaine, methamphetamines and other drugs as well as 161 weapons, with 70 people arrested,  Clarence Williams of the Washington Post reports.

In documents unveiled Monday, Christopher Washington–one of the arrested–offered handgrenades and a rocket launcher to an undercover officer.  Authorities called the sting  one of their most important weapons investigations in recent history.

“Had those drugs and guns made it to our streets, the consequences would be devastating,” D.C. police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said.

The Post reported that the FBI had wired a stylish Northeast Washington rowhouse where undercover officers dealt with the criminals.  The paper reported that the FBI, D.C. police, ATF and DEA and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “uncovered connections to a Mexican drug cartel and out-of-area gun traders that led to federal investigations in a half-dozen states and a murder case in El Salvador.”
