Drug investigation underway at Miami home

MIAMI (WSVN) - Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents and police officers are conducting a drug investigation at a home in Miami.

Miami-Dade Police officers were spotted at the home along Southwest 27th Avenue and 27th Street, at around 6 a.m., Tuesday.

The home authorities are focused on is yellow with a burgundy door.

7News cameras captured a handcuffed man and woman outside of the home. The woman was visibly upset as she wiped away tears.

As ATF agents walked in and out of the house, they walked away with bags labeled “evidence.”

A neighbor said he was enjoying quiet time early in the morning when he heard a big bang. He said he came outside and saw an armored truck outside of the home and agents going in and out of the property.

“I was laying in bed, and I heard like, uh, I would compare it to a nightstick — boom, boom, boom, boom, boom — a lot of beating. You heard a lot of commotion, some hollering. You heard a good bit of verbal Spanish and then you heard a blast,” said Scott White, who lives nearby. “Then you heard a dog bark for, [expletive], maybe about 10 minutes, and then it all went quiet.”

Other ATF agents were spotted around the same time at an apartment building in Southwest Miami-Dade.

Police tape was wrapped around Southwest 82nd Street and 71st Place with agents going in and out of the high-rise.

One resident said he saw agents searching an SUV in the condo garage.

Back in Miami, things calmed down once more.

People were still inside the home that was searched, but no one answered the door.

It remains unclear if the two investigations are related.

ATF officials confirm they were at both locations but did not provide any details surrounding the investigations.
