HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - Harris County Precinct 4 deputy constables made nine arrests Wednesday during a drug raid at a home in northwest Harris County.

Undercover officers served a search warrant and went through the house in the 11300 block of Forrest Valley Drive around 5 a.m. as part of an ongoing investigation, officials said.

Neighbors had been complaining for months about activity at the home, according to officials. 

"Traffic in and out, just running engines all hours of the night. They never slept. It was like a big disturbance," said neighbor David Kato.

Deputies found an undisclosed amount of methamphetamines, they said is "consistent with distribution," along with a stolen motorcycle during the search.

Precinct 4 deputy constables arrested seven men and two women in the raid. 

"We had information that lead us to believe that threats against law enforcement were made and that the officers could be at risk when making entry so we had take all steps possible to make sure our deputies and the residents inside the home could be detained safely," said Captain Jonathan Zitzmann with Harris County, Precinct 4.

Pictures of the home taken during the search showed several windows had been shattered. Multiple patrol vehicles were also parked outside the house.

"I actually thought the house had blown up. It was very loud booms and then I heard, 'Come out with your hands up. This is the police,'" said neighbor Debbie Harvey.
