LAWTON, OK (TNN) - Officers with the Lawton Police Department and the Bomb Disposal Unit, have been out here now for more than 20 hours. We’ve been out here since this afternoon and it’s still unclear what investigators are looking for...Within the last hour activity has picked up.
The National Guard showed up along with multiple non descript trailers now lined up along the entrance of the complex.
At Two this morning, officers were called on the scene on reports of a domestic dispute.
When they arrived, they quickly discovered items that led them to believe drug related activity was taking place inside an apartment at the complex.
Lawton Police Department then contacted Special Operations to come down, and during their investigation they found other suspicious material, and deemed it dangerous enough to call the Highway Patrol and have their Bomb Disposal Unit come out to the complex.
That unit arrived around 4 this afternoon, and has now moved directly in front of the unit being searched.
A portion of the apartment complex and the road leading up to it are still closed off at this time.
We’ll update you with any new information as soon as it becomes available.
