A large drug bust in North Tyler was carried out by the Tyler Police Department today.
Tyler Police, including SWAT officers and the Tyler Fire Department carried out a search warrant in the 400 block of West Cochran Street. The residence was occupied when police served the warrant, and officers located a SKS rifle with a 100 round drum, a .40 caliber handgun, crack cocaine, and an undetermined amount of cash.
Tyler Police describe the house as "heavily fortified", with windows boarded up except for small drilled peepholes, and a front door with a large block of wood bolted to the floor so that it could only be opened a small amount.
Many neighbors, including young Dante Calloway, 12, say that the house had a lot of activity.
"I noticed people coming in and lining up, and they actually tried to give us a BBQ, and all that."
One day, a man from the house offered Dante much more than that - a gun. "I took off running," he says. "I think he was drunk because he was pointing it at me."
Two men were arrested in the bust- Donald Eubanks, 41, of Irving, and Charles Dewayne Davis, 53, of Tyler.
Narcotics investigators believe that this residence is connected to the drug operation that was busted on West Wilson Street in 2007.
