GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety made five arrests during an early morning drug bust Wednesday. 

Grants Pass Department of Public Safety Lt. Todd Moran said the investigation began several days ago when an officer arrested a man under the influence of heroin and in possession of it. 

"From that time the Rogue Area Drug Enforcement team got involved with the investigation and as they often do, they started with the investigation working that individual and working that back to a location where they believed the source of the narcotics was coming from," Moran said. 

The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety SWAT team and RADE served a search warrant at a home on Cloverlawn Drive. Officials found a large amount of Methamphetamine and heroin, as well as scales, packaging material, cash and other evidence. They also found three firearms and a Butane Honey Oil (BHO) lab with several ounces of BHO that had already been made at the home. 

Police arrested 32-year-old Christopher Wilson, 22-year-old Emily Toledo, 31-year-old Ashley Bolen, and 32-year-old Brian Rising.

Nearby Neighbor Leon Stansfield said he has noticed suspicious activity around the home for the last few years. 

"A lot of people seemed to have moved in and moved out over the time that we've been here," Stansfield said. 

Another neighbor, Cathy Gray, said she is hopeful the home will be torn down not that the drug bust has happened.

"This house should be condemned, and it has been, it doesn't fit in with the rest of the neighborhood," Gray said. 

Neighbors said drugs are not the only problem they've had with the house.

"That home seems to be rat infested and we've had rat infestations in our place from there and other neighbors around us have also had rats show up in their place and that's a problem," Stansfield said. 

Lt. Moran said the future of the home is up to the landlord on whether or not he will continue renting the home.
