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.
