SWAT Team Busts Marijuana “Grow House” In Top Hat
One man was arrested when a marijuana “grow house” operation was busted in the Top Hat neighborhood Friday morning, Jan. 22nd by Bellevue Police, working with the King County Sheriff’s Department SWAT team.
“This was a joint mission with the Eastside Narcotics Task Force (ENTF) and SWAT on a search warrant for a grow house in Burien,” said Officer Carla Iafrate, Bellevue Police Public Information Officer.Â “A couple flash bangs were used for distraction when breaching the doorway.Â One adult male was arrested.”
The ENTF is a partnership of the King County Sheriffâ€™s Office and police departments from Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland and Mercer Island.
Bellevue P.D. was apparently involved because it was serving the search warrant, according to Sgt. John Urquhart of the Sheriff’s Department.
No other details of the operation are available at this time.
