Grants Pass police identifies crime hot spot house

(KTVL/ Kimberly Kolliner)

Neighbors say a house on SW Western in Grants Pass has seen suspicious traffic for years.

Neighbors, who asked to stay anonymous say they put in a call to police at least five to six times a week.

Just this past weekend the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety responded to 42 SW Western and made between five to 10 arrests associated with the residence.

That house has now been identified as a hot spot for police, and they are coming up with routine patrols for the area to combat the many issues they say are present.

"Having individuals that are creating livability issues for neighbors, they're also engaged in criminal activity in regards to drug use. Probably some theft in regards to obtaining funds to provide money for their drug use," said Lieutenant Todd Moran, from the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety.

Neighbors say they're appreciative of the police presence and are hoping this will become less appealing to individuals looking to commit crimes.
