Springfield, Mo. -- (1/25/2018) The Greene County SWAT team was executing a search warrant Wednesday evening on behalf of the Combined Ozarks Multi-Jurisdictional Enforcement Team for narcotics when a shot was fired while inside the house.
The shot was fired in the direction of the SWAT team from one of the three suspects inside the master bedroom/master bathroom. There were no injuries and three suspects were taken into custody.
Greene County presented charges to the prosecutor for Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer and Unlawful Use of a Weapon on each of the suspects.
“If you are dealing drugs in our county, you will receive a visit from our SWAT team,” warns States Sheriff Jim Arnott. “Our team is highly trained and skilled to be able to handle these situations. Guns, drugs, and violent criminals were taken off of the streets. All three suspects were taken to jail, without incident, and everyone went home safely.”
