TAYLOR MILL, Ky. (FOX19) - Residents in a section of Taylor Mill were briefly under a shelter-in-place order Tuesday morning asking them to stay indoors while police serve a warrant in the area, Kenton County dispatchers tell FOX19 NOW.

The area impacted was Jefferson Place to Saint Matthews Circle to Wolf Road, they say.

Authorities began clearing the scene about 6:30 a.m.

Residents Stephanie Cain said in a tweet that she got a call just before 6 a.m. that sounded real telling her to shelter-in-place and avoid windows and doorways.

Independence police said they executed a “high-risk” search warrant with the assistance of a SWAT team at a residence in the 5500 block of Taylor Mill Road in Taylor Mill.

The search warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into the theft of a firearm, said Lt. Brian Ferayorni.

Police say several occupants in the home were detained during the initial search and later released.

Items were seized in reference to the search warrant but the case is still ongoing.

One person was arrested on a drug charge during the investigation, according to police.

No names have been released at this time.
