LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – DPS troopers requested assistance from the Lubbock County Sheriff's office SWAT team while serving a felony drug warrant. The raid on the south Lubbock warehouse near the intersection of 82nd and Ash lasted for nearly 3 hours.
LSO Captain Mike Reed says teams on the scene felt like there were people inside the warehouse but no one answered or gave any indication they would come out. Cpt. Reed says teams on the scene got a warrant to enter the warehouse.
Negotiators used a public address system to make contact with the two people inside the building. LSO negotiators tried for about an hour and a half to get the two men inside to come out. At that point, tactical teams used gas grenades and flash bang devices to make entry.
One man was hiding in a car in the storage unit and put up a brief struggle.
Two people were taken into custody on the scene. Clayton Keen, 27, faces a felony drug charge and is behind bars on about $24,000 bond. Authorities also arrested Douglas Roberts, 43, for hindering apprehension.
One suspect was treated for minor injuries on the scene. No deputies or troopers were injured.
