Baltimore police said in a statement that members of the Southeastern District Action Team and the Monument Street Initiative Team executed a search and seizure warrant at a residence Saturday afternoon, recovering a loaded 9mm handgun, suspected cocaine, suspected crack cocaine and suspected heroin.

Police say 36-year-old Melvin Tucker and 55-year-old Edward Cooper were arrested. Cooper lives at the residence.
