Officers in full swat gear raided a home on Knightsbridge Lane, just off Fortune Drive, late Tuesday night.
Lexington Police have been tight-lipped about the investigation.
However, 27 NEWSFIRST has learned the Emergency Response Unit helped narcotics detectives serve an arrest warrant.
They busted in the front door at around 10:00 Tuesday night. The K-9 unit also responded to the scene. Minutes before 11:00, police took a woman into custody.
When the officers emerged on the block, neigbors had no idea what was happening.
"I was sitting inside and I heard a big commotion - just a loud bang. I heard a bunch of people yelling. I looked outside and saw cops swarming everywhere. I don't know if it was a drug bust or what happened. It was pretty serious," said Landon Elam, a neighbor.
Lt. Douglas Pape, a Lexington Police officer says narcotics officers were serving a warrant after an ongoing investigation.
Two face crack-cocaine trafficking charges

Keokuk Gate City Daily, IA
A simultaneous pre-dawn multi-force narcotics raid Monday netted two arrests, each at opposite sides of Keokuk.
The Lee County Narcotics Task Force led the 20-man actions that were aimed at people believed to be involved in the trafficking of crack cocaine.
When officers entered the York apartment, they used a “flash-bang.”
Assisting the task force were officers from the Keokuk Police Department, Lee County Sheriff's Department and reserve unit, Iowa State Tactical Team, ISP K-9 Unit, Lee County EMS and the Keokuk Fire Department.
The Lee County Narcotics Task Force is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Justice and the funds administered by the Iowa Governor's Alliance on Substance Abuse.
What's that sound?
It's the sound of jack-booted thugs making war on your neighbors. Shut up and get back in your house or you will be going down with them.
You'd better stay home
And do as you're told.
Get out of the road
If you want to grow old.
