KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Federal agents searched a south Kansas City home as part of an ongoing drug investigation Tuesday.

Neighbors say they were awakened to the sound of a loud bang at 6 a.m., as a law enforcement tactical team used a flash bang grenade to serve a search warrant at a house near 97th and Holmes.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, working with Kansas City Police and the Jackson County Drug Task Force seized evidence from the home, but did not arrest anyone.

"No one was hurt in the execution," said John Ham, an ATF Agent. "None of our agents were hurt. No one inside the home was hurt. Execution was flawless."

Neighbors tell FOX 4 they're surprised to learn that the home had been targeted as part of an investigation into drugs.

"We have a very quiet neighborhood," said Doug Bogart, who lives behind the home being searched. "Everybody knows everyone. Everyone gets along well so it's quite a surprise."

The house is right across the street from a children's preschool and neighbors are upset to learn there may be drug-related activity so close to where young children play.

Federal agents would not say what they took from the home, saying the evidence is sealed under a federal court order. It may be weeks or months before there is an arrest in this case.
