Nine people were arrested Thursday evening at a residence in the 200 block of Fry Street for drug and weapon violations, according to a news release from the Denton Police Department.

The release said the Denton Police Narcotics Investigators and Department Tactical Unit (SWAT) arrived at the house around 8 p.m. to serve a search warrant.

The operation was part of a months-long investigation to crack down on the sale of cocaine, crack, methamphetamine and K2, a form of synthetic marijuana, from the residence, according to the release. Investigators found those substances along with cocaine, marijuana and three illegally possessed firearms at the scene.

Charges for the nine individuals include varying amounts of possession of a controlled substance as well as the manufacturing and delivery of controlled substances.

Denton resident Bob Bentley, who was at the scene, said he arrived around 8 p.m. and saw a large white truck drive up with about 10 to 12 officials carrying guns.

“More police came up [in front of the house] going up to Fry Street and people started running out of the house,” Bentley said. “Most of the people were caught.”

Bentley said he thought he heard gunshots, but Denton Police spokesperson Bryan Cose told the Denton-Record Chronicle the loud sounds were likely flash-bangs, devices used to distract individuals who are being apprehended.

All suspects were taken to Denton City Jail.
