Police have three suspects in custody after a late-night raid on an east Lubbock house late Sunday night. We're told it's the culmination of an undercover investigation.

Police tell us narcotics officers had been watching a home in the 300 block of Niter Avenue, just east of the East Loop, near Third Street. When it came time to serve a search warrant Sgt. Jason Lewis says they called for backup.

"They just used the SWAT team because they were informed that they were supposed to be heavily armed individuals," Sgt. Lewis said. "Just as a precautionary measure, they did utilize a SWAT team to serve the warrant."

Lewis says no  one was injured. The three suspects officers were looking for were inside the home and are now in custody.

Detectives are gathering evidence but won't discuss what they found because it's still an ongoing undercover investigation.

In previous narcotic arrest stories, the "authorities" report how many pounds or ounces of each drug they seized. I guess SWAT discovered nothing, and are ashamed. By releasing the address, they get to make the public think the suspects are guilty. After all, why abduct and detain citizens for a bond ransom, if those on the government payroll don't already have a presumption of guilt. I hate drug dealers even more than the average citizen does, I lost my brothers when I was a child due to street drugs. I would support the automatic Death Penalty for each and every drug dealer, but the dealer had better be caught with street drugs in his or her possession, with sufficient fingerprints and/or DNA on the drug containers to prove the evidence was not planted, have a trial in which the jury is paid to side with the government, and the original arresting officer shall then give a drug overdose to the convicted dealers. That should get the dealers out of here, one way or the other.
