Officers from multiple law enforcement agencies were seen swarming the area around 10 am.

Borough residents who asked not to be identified said several K-9 units were part of what many described as a raid searching in and around the premises of two homes.
Police were seen speaking with two unidentified men.
Moors said he could not confirm or deny that report and reiterated there is no active threat to citizens related to the heavy police presence.
