SWAT Team Assists ATF in Raid at Local Residence

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

What residents in the 4400 block of Laura Place off of Gollihar thought was a loud explosion on Friday turned out to be a SWAT Team flash bang being used in a raid.

SWAT Team officers were assisting the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms as they executed a federal search warrant at a home in that neighborhood at around 9 a.m. Authorities searched the house inside and out for close to two hours, but no one has been arrested.

"I was getting ready to go to the doctor's office, heard an explosion, came outside. The gang unit was out there," said Roy Ferdin, who lives in that neighborhood. "They told me to go back inside. I was kind of shocked. So close to the house."

Agents brought out a box of evidence they collected from inside, but officials would not say what that box contained. An ATF spokesperson said the person who they are investigating was home at the time, but was not arrested.

According to officials, five adults and several children live at the house, but are not a part of the investigation.

The ATF goes after violent crimes involving firearms, mainly targeting the most violent of offenders. In this case, there were no arrests and no guns were found, but law enforcement officials said future arrests are possible.
