A drug task force cracked down on a problem house in a Vancouver neighborhood on Thursday.
Deputies and a SWAT team served a search warrant at 6105 NE 124th St. in the Glenwood area of Clark County at 5:30 a.m.
The warrant is part of an ongoing investigation into drug trafficking at the home.
As of 7 a.m., several people had been detained at the home, and detectives were searching for evidence.
Jeff Barton, who lives nearby, said he's happy to see something finally being done.
"It just seems to go on and on and on," he said. "Cars coming and going, dropping people off, they'll pull down the road and wait for them to make their pick up. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know what's going on here."
Barton said needles have been found up and down the road, and he estimates more than 100 911 calls have been made regarding the house.
"It never used to be like this," he said. "I hope this time (police) got what they needed."
Task force commander Mike Cooke acknowledged that detectives hope to bring "much-needed relief" to residents of the neighborhood who "have had to put up with this house for a long time."
"Because of the nature of our work, the neighbors in this area have not been privy to all of the efforts we've gone through to get to this point in the investigation," Cooke said. "Unfortunately that's created the impression that law enforcement was not doing anything about this house. We have, and today is the result of those efforts."
