Breaking: Police, SWAT Team Close Portion of Winter Street

Police this morning were directing traffic away from Winter Street as SWAT vehicles and an ambulance blocked access.

The action involved the execution of a search warrant near Lafayette Square, detective Captain Robert P. Pistone told WHAV, but he did not elaborate.

The intersection of Winter Street and Lafayette was closed to traffic before 6 this morning as officers redirected southbound traffic in Lafayette Square onto Essex Street. At least one ambulance and a SWAT unit vehicle from the NorthEast Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (NEMLEC) were also observed nearby. However, Pistone told WHAV, “No need for the public to be concerned.”

NEMLEC is a consortium of police departments in Middlesex and Essex Counties, and two County Sheriff’s Departments.

This is a developing story. WHAV will bring you further updates as they become available from Haverhill Police.
