UPDATE: A federal investigation is ongoing after an undercover police raid at a home in the Westnedge Hill Neighborhood in Kalamazoo.

Officer's from multiple agencies conducted the raid at 2110 S. Westnedge Avenue Thursday morning. Detective Lieutenant Jim Lass with Michigan State Police's Southwest Enforcement Team said the raid came after a search warrant and arrest warrant were issued from the U.S. Attorney's Office in Grand Rapids. He said this is a federal case.

"The investigation is still ongoing. At this point we're not allowed to say a whole lot about it," Lass said. "I can say that there's no threat to the public right now. Everyone that we were looking for we have, so there's no danger there."

Lass said MSP, MSP's SWET division, the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office, ICE's federal division and the DEA's federal division were all part of the operation. He said there was not fight at the home and no one was hurt.

So far no agency has confirmed how many people were arrested. Our crews saw one adult man taken into custody with handcuffs.

A spokesman for ICE has confirmed their involvement saying this is a drug enforcement case and not an immigration case.
