EL PASO COUNTY – If you see SWAT officers and people milling around in white suits within your neighborhood be aware they’re out serving warrants against low-level illegal grow operators.

Our News5 Photojournalist Joe Bevans caught up with them at a home on the 4900 block of Hawk Meadow Drive.

There are already marijuana plants laid out on the front yard as authorities gather evidence from the home in a neighborhood west of the Colorado Springs Airport.

We’ll let you know how many homes or businesses were raided as the information becomes available.
