Homeland Security executes search warrant at College Station home
Federal agents were seen coming and going from the house on Westchester Avenue early Wednesday morning.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - A large law enforcement presence could be seen Wednesday morning in a neighborhood between College Station Middle School and Rock Prairie Elementary School.
Homeland Security officials have confirmed to KBTX investigators were there searching the home on Westchester Avenue but declined to release any other details. It’s unclear if anyone was arrested but at least one source familiar with the situation said federal agents seized several electronics including a computer.
College Station police said they were there to provide a “uniformed presence while Homeland Security served a warrant”.
Residents like Glen Batson said it was around 7:00 a.m. when they started noticing the commotion in the neighborhood .
“There was just a line of cars all around the block. Two College Station police patrol cruisers and all the other cars looked to be unmarked," said Batson.
Plainclothes officers could be seen wearing gloves and entering and exiting the home and an unmarked law enforcement van was parked in the driveway.
“Some people would come back, get backpacks from their cars, head back to the house. People were just kind of coming and going and there were a lot of officers standing around. I saw one person carry something large out on their shoulder and I couldn’t tell what it was," said Batson.
One resident in the neighborhood said a federal agent told her there was no immediate danger to neighbors.
Investigators left the home around 2:00 p.m.
