VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta Police say raids are always dangerous and stressful, and there's no guarantee something won't go wrong.

Valdosta Police do extensive research and careful planning before any raid. They try to collect as much information as possible about the home and the surrounding area before going in.

"Any time you're plannin' somethin' like that, you have to do an investigation," said Valdosta Police Department Lieutenant Aaron Kirk. "You have to have a lot of research into it, a lot of background...they try to prepare for different situations, sometimes there's situations you can't prepare for."
 
The D.A. in Habersham County said there's no timeline for when the GBI investigation into the raid there will be complete.
