More than a dozen SWAT team members swarmed around a house in the Harper’s Ridge neighborhood in Warner Robins Wednesday afternoon to execute a search warrant for drugs, a Warner Robins Police officer on scene said.

Animal Control was also on the scene at the house in the 200 block of Woods Edge Way, where several neighbors said they heard a boom sometime before 4 p.m.

After the SWAT team left, investigators started searching cars in the driveway.

Spokeswoman Jennifer Parson refused to provide any information to the public about what occurred, other than stating a search warrant was executed.

“That’s all I can tell you,” she said. “It’s an investigation and we will release that information when we are at liberty to, but right now, it’s not the time to do that.”

Margaret Cox, who lives a few houses down from the house where the warrant was executed, said she’d come home from the hair salon and was unable to return to her home because patrol cars blocked the street.

“This is crazy,” Cox said while watching SWAT team members hop into a truck and leave.

Cox said she’d heard of talks about “the drug house” on her street from the subdivision’s Facebook page.

“It looks like they finally did something about it. Clearly, somebody reported it,” Cox said.
