CAMP VERDE — Verde Valley SWAT, along with the Partners Against Narcotics Taskforce, served a search warrant on a residence in the town limits of Camp Verde in the early hours of Monday morning, according to the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office.

A few phone call tips to the Independent newsroom from readers in the community stated they heard loud “explosions” and a man talking on a megaphone yelling, “Come out now.”

The Camp Verde Marshall’s Office was involved in assisting, but could not reveal any details and deferred to YCSO for comment, Lt. Stephen Butler told the Independent.

YCSO spokesperson Kristin Greene confirmed the operation Monday, Sept. 20, which reportedly took place around 4 a.m.

Greene said that drugs and weapons were involved, with four people being detained.

“It is a huge investigation and still going on currently,” Greene said in an email to the Independent, adding that she could not add more detail due to the nature of the investigation at this time.
