The Sunnyside Police Department’s SWAT team was asked by the LEAD Task Force of Yakima County to assist yesterday, Thursday, with a search in the 100 block of Thill Avenue. Sunnyside Police Sergeant Joey Glossen said the search was part of an ongoing narcotics investigation by the task force in which multiple warrants and arrests were made yesterday in the Grandview and Sunnyside areas. Among the other agencies on-scene here in Sunnyside was the State Patrol’s K-9 unit. Sunnyside’s SWAT team assisted the search for about an hour and, as a precaution, traffic was blocked in the area during that time.
