Officers execute a search warrant in Menlo Park

On September 15, 2016 at approximately 5:00 AM, the Menlo Park Police Department, assisted by the East Palo Alto Police Department and the FBI SWAT Team, served a search warrant at a residence in the 1300 block of Sevier Ave., in Menlo Park. The search warrant was obtained in conjunction with a firearms and criminal street gang case being investigated by the Menlo Park Police Department. Several residents inside the house were detained during the search, and all but one was later released. One subject is currently being interviewed.

While searching the residence, numerous code violations were located including converted living spaces, kitchens and bathrooms. Gas and electrical lines were also illegally modified and in an extremely unsafe condition. The Menlo Park Fire Protection District responded to the residence along with a Menlo Park building Inspector. The residence was deemed not safe for habitation and tagged as such.
