Drugs, thousands of dollars and a gun were seized in a raid Tuesday night in East Baltimore, according to Baltimore police.

Police arrested Anthony Martin, 22, in connection with a raid on Townway Court in the Oliver neighborhood, several blocks east of Greenmount Cemetery, police said. The seizure yielded 88 vials of cocaine, $3,819 and a loaded 0.40-caliber weapon, according to authorities.

Community members tipped police off on the activity on Townway Court, said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

Martin has prior drug and gun convictions, according to court documents, including a 2008 conviction for possession of a handgun.
