Man, Teenager Arrested Following SWAT Team Response at Maynard Home

One adult and a teenager were arrested Thursday following an investigation that prompted a SWAT team response at a home in Maynard, Massachusetts.

Local and state police as well as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives responded to a home on Acton Court at 7:15 a.m. to serve a high-risk warrant. A SWAT team was called in when police said an investigation led them to believe firearms were inside the home.

Two men, an adult and a 16-year-old, were eventually taken into custody just before 1 p.m.

One firearm was recovered during the investigation.

Neighbor Christina Mora said she watched the whole incident unfold.

"The huge sniper rifle with a silencer on it, said Mora, describing the weapon authorities seized. "We just don’t see stuff like that around here."

No injuries were reported.

"There were no injuries, no use of force," said Maynard Police Chief Mark Dubois.

The exact charges the men face are expected to be released at a later date.

"Thanks to an efficient and orderly operation today, two dangerous suspects have been taken into custody," said Dubois.
