Three Homes Raided on One Block

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Police raided three homes on one block and now neighbors are looking for answers. A neighbor who lives across the street from one of the homes called our newsroom looking for answers as to what happened.

Corey McCart was leaving his house near the corner of Woodland and Pleasant Avenue around eight o'clock yesterday morning when he saw several unmarked cars and police officers outside his house.

"In the brown house they were searching the house and the vehicle and the trunks were open and the hoods of the car were open and the house was completely open and they were walking around the property," said McCart.

It didn't stop there. Corey then went around to the side of his house where he saw even more officers surrounding two other homes on a neighboring street.

"I noticed that the vehicle had their trunks and hoods open just like the house over here did, said McCart.

Corey says he didn't see anyone taken away in handcuffs, but later one of the home owners, whose house was searched, brought in a u-haul style truck loaded everything in his house in it and left with his two cars. We knocked on the front door and it was clear the owners left.

We were able to flag down someone leaving one of the other houses that was searched by police.  He wouldn't talk on camera or give us any details, but he seemed upset when we asked him about the house being raided.

Police didn't give neighbors any information yesterday as to what they were raiding the homes for and now Corey is left wondering what was going on in his quiet neighborhood.

McCart says, "It's a quiet neighborhood. Never heard much of anything going on. The schools not too far away down the road. It's pretty quiet neighborhood I haven't heard of any problems here."

We left numerous messages with yakima police and even stopped by the department this afternoon, but no one would talk to us or return our calls.
