Wichita police were at a house in southeast Wichita into the early morning hours Thursday in a raid that may be connected to the BTK serial killer.

Lead detectives on the BTK investigation were among those seen by reporters leaving the house.

Police officers were also seen wearing gloves and carrying out plastic bags from the home in the 1400 block of Mt. Vernon.

KWCH Eyewitness News in Wichita has learned police were executing a search warrant in connection with the BTK case but police would not comment on activities at the home on Mt. Vernon.

Wichita police booked a 64-year-old man into the Sedgwick County jail Wednesday evening on an old trespassing charge. The Wichita Eagle reports bond was increased to $17,000 after a second warrant charged the man with housing code violations.

Police have not confirmed anything about the developments overnight Wednesday into Thursday. But a reporter with our News Partner KFDI saw the initials BTK on the booking paperwork for that man.

The house on Mt. Vernon sits next to railroad tracks and Eyewitness News crews could hear trains pass by several times through the night. On Tuesday, Wichita police released details information about the BTK Suspect, including his admitted fascination with trains

It's a darned shame it took to long to catch this killer, but justice is patient. I hope they got the right perp and that he get his just rewards.

I am impressed at how swiftly everything came into place once they released all the private info. Maybe they should have tried that years ago?
