MEDFORD, Ore.-- Medford Police raided a known drug house near the intersection of West Main Street and North Columbus Avenue Wednesday afternoon.

Following the hours-long raid, the home has been condemned and at least three people have been arrested.

MADGE says it's an ongoing investigation, but neighbors here say they're thrilled to have this not be a chronic nuisance house anymore.

A neighbor says she's been dealing with a year of living in fear because of the traffic this drug house brought near her home.

Kathy Childers says, "It's constant, daily they come into our yards, go up onto our roof, they tried to break into my car. You're always afraid of things happening, I have grandchildren and I couldn't let them outside because of scary people."

Medford Police say they decided to investigate today after several months of complaints.

Police say 9 people were inside when they made contact.

If you feel you are living near a problem house, call code enforcement.
