Four people have been cited on charges that include possession of pharmaceutical drugs, heroin as well as manufacturing and distribution of heroin. Grants Pass Police along with a SWAT team served a warrant at 1251 Oak View Drive after receiving complaints from people in the neighborhood about possible illegal drug sales. Along with the drugs that officers found inside the home, guns were also seized, one thought to be stolen as well as two young children who were assisted by Department of Human Service.

Today one woman at the home was packing her things. She claimed that she and her boyfriend had rented a room but didn't know anything illegal was happening. People in surrounding homes say it's obvious that they're dealing drugs not only from the home but at nearby Riverside Park. Cars, sometimes more than a dozen a day flood the single lane driveway.

Two homes sit on the property and police confirm that there has been some sort of eviction going through the process. It's unclear how many people live there or if they're still there. Those who were cited were released because of the lack of resources in Josephine County. Police say they will be responsible for making their court appearances.
