SAN ANTONIO – Drugs, weapons, and body armor were discovered in two Southeast Side homes on Wednesday afternoon.

The raid took place in the 100 block of Harcourt near Interstate 37 and Goliad.

Six people, including one who is believed to be a member of a white supremacist group, were arrested and now face federal drug charges.

BCSO Covert Operations, BCSO SWAT and members of the TAG-Drug Enforcement Agency raided the homes.

High-grade marijuana, methamphetamine, heroin, weapons and heavy-duty military grade body armor were discovered.

Sheriff Javier Salazar said the street value of the drugs is valued at over $1 million.

A woman, who asked to be identified as Sandra, was outside Brook Hill Baptist Church where she volunteers. She said she ducked for cover when the bust happened.

”I heard a big pop. A loud bang noise, and I ran over here under my car,” she said.

Sandra remains shocked something like that could happen so close to her place of worship.

“It could happen anywhere. You don’t know where it’s going to happen. You don’t know when it’s next door,” she said.

Sandra said she remains thankful that no one was hurt, and in those moments of fear it was her faith that got her through.

“I just thank the good Lord above. That’s all I can say,” she said.
