Police, SWAT on scene of suspected illegal immigrant drop house

TUCSON - As of 5 p.m. Monday evening, Tucson Police officers remain outside a suspected illegal immigrant drop house on Tucson's south side, near Drexel Road and South Nogales Highway, and additional SWAT units arrived.

Police have been outside the home in the 100 block of W. Mossman since about 11:45 a.m. Monday, neighbors confirmed to News 4 Tucson's Sean Mooney, who is on the scene. He says there are multiple officers and SWAT units with guns drawn and pointed at the house.

A man in the area told News 4 Tucson that he was confronted by a TPD officer, who told him to get out of the area. A neighbor said they saw police take several people into custody from the home this morning, and another neighbor said that he heard the sounds of people arguing and gunshots on Saturday night.

Police say they are waiting for Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigators to arrive, and will hand the investigation over to them. No other information was available.
