The Red River Valley SWAT Team, The Cass County Drug Taskforce and The Fargo Police Department Execute High-Risk Search Warrant

Coordinated operation results in successful arrest of one individual


At approximately 6:24 a.m. on Friday, February 9, the Red River Valley SWAT Team and The Fargo Police Department assisted the Cass County Drug Task Force (CCDTF) with a high-risk search warrant in the 300 block of 15th St. N.

The SWAT Team utilized a Flash Sound Diversionary Device (FSDD) to create a loud bang and bright flash of light. The FSDD is used to distract suspects, allowing officers to perform tasks that may put them in danger.

This collaborative effort resulted in five individuals being detained. Andrew Nording, a 37-year-old Fargo resident, was arrested and taken into custody for an outstanding federal warrant.

This is an ongoing investigation; no further information is immediately available.
