DOWNEY – Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department swarmed a house in Downey on Friday, according to police and accounts from neighbors.
Officers from outside the city were conducting surveillance in relation to a drug investigation when they called Downey Police to help contact people in a home on the 11700 block of Mitla Avenue, according to Downey Police Lt. Dean Milligan.
Milligan did not name the police agency conducting the investigation.
Neighbors said a S.W.A.T team arrived around 5 p.m. and that it appeared someone may have been arrested.
The street was blocked off temporarily, and officers had their guns drawn and were yelling toward the house, neighbors said.
The SWAT team is a unit of the Los Angeles Police Department. A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department said the department does not comment on the location or operations of its S.W.A.T. team and she declined to give any information required by law to be released to the public, such as any arrests made at the location.
Mitla is east of Old River School Road just south of Firestone Boulevard.
