The Lincoln Interagency Narcotics Task Force raided three locations in the Lincoln City area this morning and have begun arresting those suspected of running illegal drug processing and sales operations. The actions were well noticed by neighbors as SWAT Team members used what are called “flash-bang” devices to startle the occupants with a minor explosion and tear gas, and to order them outside. A flash-bang approach usually signifies that SWAT has reason to believe there are weapons inside. One house “taken down” was at the corner of Spyglass Ridge Road and SW Fleet, according to the neighbors.
Three locations were hit; one in Lincoln City near Taft High School, one in the Holmes Road area, and one in Otis.
LINT officials say a news release is in the process of being drawn up.
