EUGENE, Ore. — After weeks of investigating, the Eugene Police Department hauled 14 people to jail from a drug house.
Officers scoped out the apartment and then made the arrests Monday night.
Police spotted several people of interest heading into an apartment unit on Fifth Avenue and Jefferson Street.
One of those taken to jail was charged with possession of meth, and others for frequenting the house. Police say it’s likely heroin was also being used in the apartment.
On Tuesday some of those people were released from jail and even came back to the area. Our cameras even captured a number of people going in and out of the apartment.
The arrests took a lot of time and resources from the police, but officers say stopping drug use can help prevent other crimes.
“Most property crime, a large amount of property crime, is tied to drug addiction and drug use, people who are stealing things in order to support drug habits, and so interrupting the behaviors of the drug addicts that are committing those crimes helps slow down that crime,” said Lt. Scott Fellman, Eugene Police Department.
Police located a missing Medford woman at that apartment.
Here is a list of the people who were arrested:
Anastasia Loren Yell
Karen Lee Young
Nicholas Earl Burnside
Rosanna Lynn Miller
Chad Jessie Lee Brown
Daryl Ray Johnson
Michelle Lee Bucknell
