THE SAGINAW NEWS, MI
The explosion of a grenade designed to cause a distraction hastily drew Tracy W. Kahary out of his apartment and into a scene involving police surrounding a Saginaw home.
Kahary said he counted about 20 officers, many clad in SWAT gear, and carrying automatic rifles in the twilight Tuesday as they circled around a townhouse at 721 N. Bates, near Throop.
Township Police Detective Sgt. Jack Doyle said a drug investigation tip led his department, with the help of the Saginaw Emergency Services Team, into the city.
The 15-officer raid, with two state Department of Corrections agents, began about
8:15 p.m., he said.
Officers with lights mounted on their rifles searched the area around the home, with at least one frequently pointing the weapon's white light at the grass while a chilly spring rain fell.
A Saginaw police canine team assisted in the search.
Officers found small amounts of drugs, Doyle said. As of this morning, they had made no arrests.
