MONROE, Wash. - Among the earth tone homes on the tree lined street, the house at 154th and Heintz sticks out like a sore thumb.

But when the police showed up this morning it wasn't the paint job they were worried about.

Skyking was overhead as undercover officers raided the home in Monroe, a home in north Everett, and others throughout Snohomish County.

The homeowner is one of 16 people named a federal indictment accusing them of distributing methamphetamine, cocaine and money laundering.

"I'm floored, I'm shocked, I'm absolutely stunned, I had absolutely no idea," said Lore Dahlstrom.

Dahlstrom lives right across the street from the home, which sits opposite Fryelands Elementary School.

"And this is a walking district too for all of the children, they walk by that house every single day," said Dahlstrom.

Undercover officers asked that we not identify them as we watched them haul out tires and boxes of evidence.

Right now, they aren't talking about what they found and how the raids might be connected.

Dahlstrom says there were people frequently coming and going, and some of them appeared to be living there from time to time.

Looking back, that seems suspicious.

Yesterday, there were raids in King and Pierce counties, involving the sale of Oxycontin.

At this point, it does not appear the busts here in Snohomish County are connected those busts.
