CENTRAL IOWA – Neighborhoods in the metro were disrupted early Thursday morning, as authorities stormed 20 homes.
Federal agencies raided the homes and apartments as part of a larger investigation into federal narcotics and weapons charges, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Those residences were served federal search warrants early Thursday morning, all in residential neighborhoods. Most of them, fifteen, were in Des Moines; three were in Urbandale; and two in Clive.
Local 5 talked to people who live in those areas – and some are more surprised than others.
