KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Officers raided a home in Kalamazoo for drugs to find 2 children including an infant inside the residence.

According to authorities, detectives from the Southwest Enforcement Team executed a search warrant for drugs in the 1300 block of East Stockbridge Avenue late Wednesday night.

Detectives utilized multiple other agencies such as the Metro Special Response Team, Michigan State Police, Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s, and the Kalamazoo Public Safety K9 team to make entry due to prior information that indicated weapons were inside the home.
