Easton Police Search South Side Residence

Easton police searched a residence at 139 Scott St. in the South Side neighborhood of the city today at about 3:15 p.m., the EPD reports.

The contents of the search warrant is currently sealed, and the investigation was undertaken by the Easton Police Criminal Investigations Division on behalf of the Brooklyn New York District Attorney’s office, police said in a media release.

Representatives from the DA’s Office were present when the warrant was served, and unspecified  evidence was seized from the property, local officials added.

Residents at the property refused to open the door, and police encountered two aggressive dogs after breaching the door, Easton Lieutenant Matt Gerould said.

It is unclear whether any suspects were taken into custody as a result of the search.

When reached by phone, a media spokesperson for the Brooklyn New York District Attorney’s office said he was unable to give out any further information about the event, other than that it was part of a larger ongoing investigation.

He also cited that the warrant is still sealed and said he had no further information about when more information about the case might be released.

Editor's note: We will update this story as more facts about the case are released.

Updated at 6:06 p.m. and again on Tuesday, April 30 at 12:27 a.m.
