The Drug Enforcement Administration found fentanyl in a Chula Vista home Tuesday morning, resulting in the arrest of one man, officials confirmed.
Joined with San Diego law enforcement, the DEA executed a federal search warrant at around 6 a.m. for a home along McCloud River Road, off Santa Paula Drive and Otay Lakes Road.
Crews found fentanyl and opioids inside the home but could not reveal how much, according to DEA agent Nathan Jones.
Agents used flash bangs to coax the suspect out of the home. Jones said no guns were fired, and the man surrendered without incident.
A next-door neighbor told NBC 7 she heard the flash-bang grenade and ordered her children to get on the floor, fearing it was gunfire.
" I initially heard the helicopters and a few minutes later, two big loud noises, we thought it was gunshots at first, then we found out it was like a flash bang," another neighbor, Aaron Santiago said.
The man, who has not yet been identified, faces a federal charge of suspicion of drug trafficking, Jones told NBC 7.
The house is located across the street from Countryside Park and roughly a half-mile southwest from the Eastlake Village Marketplace, in what neighbors described as a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood. It was not clear if the man who was arrested lived or owned the home.
An NBC 7 photographer at the scene noticed about a dozen people standing in the driveway of the home at around 7 a.m.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service and Homeland Security Investigations are assisting the DEA with the investigation.
