SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (KABC) -- More than 120 illegal guns and rifles were seized by San Bernardino police as officers served a series of recent search warrants, authorities announced Monday.

Officers also confiscated high-capacity magazines, ammunition, several pounds of methamphetamine and cocaine, and about $600,000 in cash, according to a news release.

The eight search warrants were executed in connection with several investigations, according to the San Bernardino Police Department.

Most of the weapons were so-called "ghost guns" and modified automatic rifles.

Underground businesses were peddling the guns behind the facades of illegal storefronts, including an auto repair shop and a gun parts store, the Police Department said.

Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that $600 in cash was found. The article has since been updated to reflect the correct amount, which was $600,000.
