Law enforcement seized drugs, guns, cash, and drugs, according to Chris Bavender, FBI Indianapolis public affairs.

Police and federal agents are searching for Gregory Henderson Jr. following Thursday’s raids.

Henderson is currently a fugitive and should be considered armed and dangerous, according to the FBI.

He was described as being 6 feet, 2 inches tall and 160 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to his arrest.

Anyone who sees Henderson or knows of his location should call 911 or FBI Indianapolis at 317-595-4000.

The FBI says Henderson should not be approached.

Neighbors of one of the raided homes described the chaotic scene early Thursday morning on Kinnear Ave.
“Boom, boom, boom, boom, about 5-6 times then I heard a mega horn goin, ‘FBI, FBI,’” said Sherman Buckner.

Multiple dogs could be seen in the back yard of the home being raided by the FBI.

They were all chained up. One kept putting it’s head through the fence.
“That fence has been up there at least about 3 or 4 months,” said Buckner.

“So not long at all,” asked I-Team 8 reporter Kody Fisher.

“Not long. That’s a brand new hide away fence that you see right there,” said Buckner who added that he was surprised by the raid.
“No warning signs that any fighting might have been going on in the back yard,” asked Fisher.

“None. Everything just seemed like nice, clean, neighbors from down the street,” said Buckner.

As the FBI searched the house on Kinnear avenue Catalina Nunez, who lives on the street, walked her three dogs. She told I-Team 8 the raid and investigation into dogfighting was surprising, “That broke my heart because I just imagine my dogs in one of those situations and I just couldn’t imagine it,” said Nunez.
5 miles away on N Webster St. another FBI team was busy loading evidence into the back of a U-Haul truck. Items that looked like treadmills for dogs were at the very back.

The FBI has not said how many people have been arrested as part of this raid and they haven’t said how many dogs have been seized.
Right now, it’s unclear exactly what will happen to all of the dogs seized in this raid.
