Cops from the 60th Precinct and Booklyn South Gang Squad uncovered a stash of drugs and firearms while executing a narcotics search warrant in Coney Island this week.

Courtney Howell, 33, was arrested at 2926 West 25th Street on Wednesday, June 22, with approximately 105 grams of cocaine, plus heroin and crack cocaine, according to police. Officers also recovered a loaded 9 millimeter firearm, bullets, and $2,636 in cash at the apartment.

The NYPD’s press office shared a photo of the confiscated items, which also appears to include three cellphones and a scale. We asked if blue baggies pictured (bottom, left) were related to the fictional “Blue Sky” methamphetamine featured in the show Breaking Bad, but alas, it appears to be packaging materials. The suspect’s ID and department property have been concealed in the photo.

Howell was charged with grand larceny, criminal possession of a weapon, and multiple drug possession charges, according to the NYPD.
