An early morning drug raid leads to three people being charged

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._An early morning drug raid on a house in NW Lawton led to three people being charged today.

A stampede of special operation law enforcement officers launched the bust with a loud bang, catching several people inside off-guard at the home near NW 24th and Williams.

Officers were very thorough in their search without any injuries or having to fire a shot. The Lawton police department tactical team served the warrant based on the likelihood of guns being in the house.

The man said he just got off work, and came to the house to sleep.

"The next thing I know I hear a loud, loud, loud, loud, boom boom boom boom ...get down get down get down , and I'm just like what the," he said.

The tactical team threw a flash bang grenade outside the house to disorient those inside for a safer, and easier arrest. One person was a suspected meth dealer, two others were charged with possession of methamphetamines and marijuana.

He said he didn't know there were drugs in the house...saying he kept to his own business.

"I mean really, it was. You know. We family you know. I don't really get into peoples business, especially family's business. Whatever they do is their choice and it's my choice to do what I do," he said.

With an elderly lady living in the house, he believes the police could have handled it differently.

"Especially coming in, breaking windows and tearing through the house, all the extras and stuff that's not necessary. We are still people," he added.

During the search of the house police did find various amounts of meth, marijuana and paraphernalia. The home also had an extensive four camera security system.

Police are still in the process of collecting evidence and have not completed their investigation.
