UPDATE (Oct. 9, 2023, 3:30 p.m.): CALEDONIA — There are still no explanations for the large law enforcement presence at a Racine County subdivision on Oct. 3.

The response occurred at The Ponds, which is tucked into the southwest corner of the Highway G and V intersection. The Ponds is known for its high-end homes on large lots just minutes from the highway.

A multi-jurisdictional effort recently focused on a home at 5952 Stefani Way. One witness told Racine County Eye that authorities used a vehicle that resembled a tank to ram through the front doors of the home.

Neighbors could see law enforcement removing items from the home for most of the day. However, no one reported seeing anyone attached to the house come out – in handcuffs or otherwise.

Lt. Michael Luell, the Racine County Sheriff’s Office public information officer, said while deputies did assist at the scene, it was not their investigation, and he could not comment on it.

He did not identify the agency in charge of the operation.

This story will be updated if additional information is released.
