A flashbang was used to serve a drug search warrant at an apartment Thursday morning (Oct. 24) in Springdale.

Residents at the Links Apartments reported hearing a loud bang as SWAT made their way inside the apartment, according to Springdale Police. A flashbang, or flash grenade, produces a blinding flash of light and loud noise to disorient suspects.
