The newspaper had a story about a gang-related raid on a home that netted cash, drug paraphernalia, and a firearm. They went in on an anonymous tip.
Next day they expanded the story to include a picture of three policemen in BP vests.

The cop in the foreground was holding a paintball gun.
The story had the added fact that the cash was “discovered stashed in a locked cash box”.
