Hartford police said they seized 200 bags of fentanyl and two guns from convicted felons in an operation that aims to snuff out the illegal narcotics and weapons trades. They arrested 10 people.

Police said they also confiscated 18 grams, or a little more than half an ounce, of crack cocaine and 3 grams, or .10 of an ounce, of unprocessed fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid.

In addition, narcotics officers found $5,000 in cash, they said early Thursday.

Police didn’t release the names of those arrested or say when the operation took place.
