Two men were arrested and one fence was destroyed as local SWAT officers and federal drug agents served a search warrant near the corner of Grandon Circle and Grandon Drive in Killeen.

At least a dozen SWAT team members armed with assault rifles and other weapons and two SWAT-type vehicles stormed the house on Grandon Circle just after 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

A SWAT vehicle knocked down a fence at the southeast corner of the house to stop someone from running out the back of the house.

Killeen police, along with a SWAT team, and personnel with the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, eventually arrested two men at the residence. There were a total of nine residents sitting near the garage as police executed the search.

“At 9:32 a.m. police executed a search warrant for narcotics,” Killeen Police Department spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez said. “All of the police units were working together.”

The Killeen Organized Crime Unit, Technical Response Unit and Fort Hood CID assisted in the search warrant. A tactical response unit was parked on the lawn near the home.

A neighbor said she knew there were drugs being sold at the house.

“People are in and out of that house all day long,” the neighbor said. “They were doing deals person to cars ... and didn’t care to hide it.” The Herald agreed to not use the person’s name because of the nature of the case.

Miramontez said she did not expect the names of the two suspects to be released Thursday. | 254-501-7464
