Residents of Canal Drive, between Palm and Geer, were awakened early this morning to the sight of a military-style law enforcement operation.

A Special Weapons and Tactics armored vehicle rolled down Canal Drive around 8 a.m. and were accompanied by a host of unmarked vehicles, an ambulance and around a dozen heavily armed officers.

Few details have been released at this time, but initial reports are that the Federal Bureau of Investigations was serving search and arrest warrants.
