A kidnapping investigation in Spokane came to a head in Coeur d'Alene's Fernan neighborhood Thursday afternoon.
The investigation began at a house near the intersection of Maple and Knox in Spokane.
The SWAT team drove their vehicles right up into the driveway and used loud speakers to notify the people inside and ask them to come out.
Neighbor Travis Corneil says he heard the whole thing.
"'This is the Spokane SWAT team, we know you're in there, please come out with your hands up,' and they repeated it a few times," Corneil explained.
Afterwards police said they took several people into custody.
"Our Major Crimes investigators as well as our tactical operations detectives are doing some follow up on an alleged kidnapping," said Spokane Police Captain Brad Arleth. "That's the reason for the search warrant and, due to the nature of the allegations, that's why we used the SWAT team to make the entry on the warrant."
Right now police aren't saying when or why the kidnapping happened, or whether any weapons were involved.
