14 Arrested in Drug House Bust

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
Kyle Farthing
Lindsey Kruesi
Rosanna Lynn Miller
Chad Jessie Lee Brown
Daryl Ray Johnson
Michelle Lee Bucknell
David Allen Cathcart
Melissa Ann Gallamore
Elija Ra McGloghlon
Katie Jolene Wilkinson

    What good does it do to arrest them? The County will just let them back out on the street in a few minutes or hours. We need to recall the County Commission and get some people in their who make public safety a priority, not a joke.

    It’s a joke, this is a boon, job security for law enforcement, related fields and nothing more! The powers that be and law enforcement don’t give two Sh*** about the people they are arresting. Its about them not helping anyone…

    Wake up people, we have no where to put these people. Besides, they need treatment not incarceration! It’s proven to be much cheaper to treat… But the powers that be, and law enforcement in their arrogance continue to arrest people! All over the nation we are releasing people from Jails and Prisons, who are non-violent because there is simply no where to put them all! The burden to the taxpayer is astronomical!

    So what do they do, they continue to arrest drug users! Morons!
