OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Heavily armed SWAT officers surrounded an Oakland warehouse housing a suspected illegal marijuana grow early Monday after receiving reports of a burglary in progress, authorities said.

Oakland police tweeted that officers responded to the 2700 block of Adeline St. around 3:53 a.m. One suspect had been taken into custody and a weapon recovered.

Responding officers also called in SWAT officers and a robotic surveillance vehicle because of concerns that other armed suspects may be hold up inside the warehouse.

The building where the burglary was reported is near Vincent Academy, a charter school that serves students in kindergarten through fifth grade, and McClymonds High School.

No other information was immediately available.
