    It's all going down right now ...

    PLAINFIELD, N.H. (AP) - Neighbors of convicted tax evaders Ed and Elaine Brown reported police SWAT teams and at least one armored vehicle converging on a field near the home Thursday morning.

    Authorities did not confirm they were moving in to arrest the fugitives, but local police, the governor's office and the U.S. Attorney's office referred calls to the U.S. Marshal's service, which has been negotiating daily with the Browns since their federal tax evasion conviction in January.

    Susan Williams, who lives a mile or so away from the Browns on Center of Town Road, said she saw police officers, SWAT team members, a fire truck, ambulance, helicopter and at least one armored vehicle assembled in a field across from her driveway.

    Another nearby resident, Russell Hoisington, said he saw a caravan of armored vehicles and many police cars drive past his house on Stage Road just before 9 a.m.

    "There's been a lot of cars heading up that way. Law enforcement types," he said.

    Hoisington's two nephews live near the Browns. He said some time after 9 a.m., state police told his nephews to leave their home, but did not tell them why.

    The Browns answered a telephone call from The Associated Press by saying: "This is the Lord's House. This is Sister Elaine and Brother Edward."

    NH also doesn't have a seat belt law. Statistics suggest they should change the motto to Live Free AND Die.

    That's actually the bad news for the Browns ... John McClain is leading the SWAT teams.
