PHOENIX -- Drugs, cash, weapons and an unloaded rocket launcher have been seized by Phoenix police in a special operation.

Police say search warrants were executed at homes in Phoenix and Black Canyon City on Tuesday and Friday as part of ``Operation High Tide.''

They say six people have been arrested, including four for conspiracy to sell marijuana.

Police say the search warrant executed Tuesday resulted in the seizure of one inert shoulder-mounted rocket launcher and some 15 handguns, shotguns, bolt-action rifles and semi-automatic rifles.

Also seized were two ballistic vests and small amounts of heroin, crack cocaine and marijuana.

Police on Friday reported seizing more than 900 pounds of high-grade marijuana, some 50 pounds of hashish, more than $821,000 in cash, one .45-caliber handgun, two cars and a motor home.
