Deputies in full gear poured down Westhaven Drive in Baton Rouge during a mid-day raid.

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's SCAT and SWAT deputies showed up to arrest Marverick Rester for drug possession. Deputies threw a "flash bang" diversion threw the window to disorient Rester, and that's all it took. He was escorted out in hand cuffs just moments later.

While deputies took him down, they're crediting this neighborhood for pointing them in the right direction, and neighbors said they were more than happy to help.
