SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -

The Spokane Regional Drug Task Force executed a search warrant in Spokane Valley Friday morning.

Deputies executed the warrant at a house near 1st Avenue and Dearborn Road around 9:30 a.m. Three people were arrested.

The SWAT team and a law enforcement helicopter were used in the raid to make sure no one escaped.

Like most suspected drug houses, the residence was filled with more than a half dozen people unrelated to each other.

Investigators had to wear masks because of the smell and filth inside the residence.

Detectives seized user amounts of methamphetamine.

Neighbors celebrated what they hope will lead to the eviction of the current tenants.

According to deputies, the house was the scene of a drive-by shooting on Jan. 14.
