The Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement team arrested at least nine people in a drug bust in Medford on Wednesday.

At 12:50 p.m. a search warrant was executed on the 100 block of Columbus St. after receiving multiple complaints of drug activity over the past year.

Medford Police say the search took about two hours. One person was in possession of a handgun.

Officers were unable to release what kind of drugs were in the house, but neighbors say it was a known meth house.

Kathy Childers has lived in the area for 4 years and says the house has always been a problem.

"They were coming into our yards, they tried to break into my car, I mean just constant traffic, so I'm so happy it finally got taken care of," said Kathy Childers, neighbor.

Medford Police say the city shut down the house a couple of years ago.

The incident is still under investigation.
