Three people from a Colorado-based motorcycle gang trying to infiltrate the metro have been arrested in the Northland, police said.
Police wanted to send a message Wednesday that violent gangs are not welcome in Kansas City.
Detectives brought out about nine guns from the house at 9601 NE 98th St. and said they found marijuana and meth after the undercover sting began about 8 a.m.
Authorities arrested two men and one woman after having the home and its occupants under surveillance for weeks. The people in the house are suspected members of a biker gang known as "Sons of Silence," police said.
According to police, there are some motorcycle gangs in the U.S. that have proven to be violent with shootouts and assaults, particularly on the West Coast.
Law enforcement agencies on scene say they are trying to keep those away who want to move into the Midwest and set up biker gangs in Kansas City.
Neighbors say they were always concerned about the traffic in and out the house and the speed of some of the riders. But they were shocked to hear of drugs and guns being found in the home.
"There are so many small children [in the neighborhood] and my grandson is three, and he has been out in the yard," Carol Johnson said. "It's frightening especially with the park there. Kids go down and feed the pony."
Neighborhood association president Jack Johnson applauded residents for voicing their concerns to authorities.
"This is a decent community and we've got kids that live here," Johnson said. "We need to keep track of all this, and we will change a lot of these things."
No charges have been filed as of Wednesday night. The homeowner had lived in the residence for an estimated five years.
