EUGENE, Ore. (KMTR) -- Eugene Police says its method of data lead policing helped them make an arrest of more than a dozen people in one apartment this morning with drugs inside.
Around 3:40 Tuesday morning, police arrested fourteen people in an apartment in the Whiteaker area. Officers moved in after spotting more than one person of interest heading into the apartment at 500 Jefferson Street, #5.
Of the fourteen individuals arrested, three had warrants for probation violations and one person was caught with meth in their possession.
In turn, everyone was charged with 'frequenting a place where controlled substances are being used'.
"In addition to catching the offenders and getting them off the street for a little bit of time - and making sure that they know that we know what they're up to and we're watching them because there [were] so many of them going to one location - this is also a location that could be causing problems for the neighborhood, so hopefully we're going to interrupt that as the investigation continues and help make the neighborhood a safer more comfortable place for other folks who live there,” said Lieutenant Scott Fellman of the Eugene Police Department.
Police say all fourteen of the individuals arrested are considered Eugene residents, but not one of them had a current address.
Tuesday afternoon, at least four individuals were seen back at the same apartment.
While investigating the apartment, Eugene Police also found a person reported missing from the Medford area.
