— Chapel Hill streets are a little safer after a major weapons bust. Police confiscated a loaded nine-millimeter M-11 machine gun from a couple in a public housing complex Thursday night.

They also took an SKS assault rifle from a car at a different apartment complex.

Arrests were made in both cases. Police say the two incidents were not related.
