Police decontaminate, arrest woman after raid

Crews had to decontaminate a woman who they believe was making meth in her town home.

Police raided the apartment on Lindenhurst Loop Monday afternoon. Firefighters then set up a decontamination line in front of the home to get fumes and potentially hazardous materials out of the complex. Neighbors watched as special operations teams searched the home.

"I was just taking my dog, Raider, for a walk and I heard probably about three guys screaming 'we're gonna bust open the door,' and I just kind of witnessed them break down the door to my neighbor's house," said Sara Dean.

One man, who was inside the apartment at the center of the raid, says he had no idea what was happening.

"And out of nowhere, all this jumps off in like two seconds. And I'm like what in the hell is going on here, dude? Why did you have me come over here, because this is a good friend of mine. I don't understand why he would put me in that position," said Ron Potter.

Police say they have arrested the woman they had to decontaminate.
