Several people were taken into custody while law enforcement served a warrant, police said.
Officers, including Rock Island Police and Rock Island County Sheriff’s Deputies, went in and out of a house in the middle of the block, where an armored police vehicle was parked. Some officers wore tactical gear and carried rifles.
