CPD takes down another drug house with early morning raid

CENTRALIA — The Centralia Police Department executed a search warrant on a reputed drug house Wednesday morning.

According to Police Chief Greg Dodson, at 6:15 Wednesday morning, the Centralia Police Department’s High-Risk Entry Team, along with the ILEAS Region 8, 9 and 11 HRT Team executed a search warrant at a home in the 400 block of South Perrine that had been under investigation.

Dodson says officers initiated entry with “flash bangs” before kicking in the front and back doors to the residence.

He says investigators are still processing the scene and details will be released later this afternoon.

Dodson thanks Centralia High School for allowing law enforcement to stage in their parking lot and the use of the Annex to conduct their briefing.

He states that the message being sent with Wednesday’s operation is “Don’t sell drugs in Centralia or you will be their next target.”
