Three Douglas County residents were arrested after members of the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team raided a Myrtle Creek home on Wednesday.
The team had been conducting an investigation into suspected drug activity in the 100 block of Mountain View Avenue, Myrtle Creek. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office, as well as DINT, had received numerous complaints of drug-related activity in the home — which is located within 1,000 feet of both South Umpqua High School and Tri-City Elementary School — for an extended period of time, according to a press release.
Law enforcement issued a search warrant and arrived at the home Wednesday afternoon. Inside, DINT located 11 people, various types of drug contraband and several grams of both heroin and methamphetamine.
Police arrested three of the residents: Danny Joe Enos, 54, of Myrtle Creek, on suspicion of heroin delivery, delivery of heroin within 1,000 feet of a school, heroin possession and methamphetamine possession. Vanessa Rebecca Hopkins, 20, of Tri-City, on suspicion of heroin possession, heroin delivery, delivery of heroin within 1,000 feet of a school and heroin possession. And Lacie Marie Yarbery, 39, of Roseburg, on suspicion of heroin delivery, delivery of heroin within 1,000 feet of a school, and heroin possession.
All three were lodged at the Douglas County Jail.
