Raid nets drugs, guns in Oceanview

San Francisco police SWAT team members raided an Oceanview district home Wednesday morning and seized numerous narcotics and weapons, Lt. Mike Favetti said.

The raid came after a four-month probe that resulted from frequent complaints from concerned neighbors, who noticed “a lot of people coming and going” from the white, two-story house atop the hill on the 300 block of Louisburg Street.

Some neighbors were awakened at 6 a.m. by the sight of masked SWAT team members carrying guns and the sound of loud banging on the door of the residence.

Inside the home, police found cocaine, crack and numerous weapons, Favetti said. The raid concluded with three arrests on what Favetti described as a mixture of narcotics, weapons and parole violation charges. One of the suspects was injured during the raid when he fell on a glass table. He was taken to a hospital and treated for minor injuries.

“It’s about time they did something about that house — this is long overdue. We never had any real problems in the neighborhood before [them],” said a neighbor awakened by the spectacle who did not want to be identified.

The suspects were all taken to the Hall of Justice and are expected to be arraigned today, Favetti said.
