This morning just before 6am there was a SWAT raid on the row house directly next door to me near 14th and Meridian Pl NW in Columbia Heights. My house mates and I suspected drug dealing was going on at the residence based off all the suspicious comings and goings we have witnessed since we moved in three months ago. We woke up to flash bangs, doors being broken in, and SWAT members apprehending people. Unfortunately, we did not get to see any of the evidence being taken out of the house. While I hope to never have that kind of scary wake up again, props to the cops for their investigation and take down! Anyone else hear or see this?
