Authorities carry out drug raids in Springfield
SPRINGFIELD, Vt. (WCAX) - Authorities are carrying out drug raids in Springfield Wednesday.
Part of Valley Street was closed to traffic as police carried out court-ordered arrest warrants and search warrants at three locations. Police say the operation is related to an ongoing investigation into illegal drug activity. Members of the public are asked to avoid the area. Valley Street has been the site of multiple incidents in recent months including shootings.
“It makes me a little nervous that certain things are going on. Luckily enough, most of the time here it is all right,” said Ruth Davis, a local resident.
Along with local and state police, the FBI, DEA, and Homeland Security are all involved in the operation. Officials say they will be releasing more information once it is available.
