Three arrested in NW Rochester drug bust

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Three people have been arrested after a drug bust in northwest Rochester over the weekend.

But neighbors say they're not so sure it'll end there.

It may seem like a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood, but KTTC spoke with several neighbors Monday who said they're not surprised about the arrests, and see drug deals exchanged in broad daylight all the time.

31-year-old Travis Eaton, 23-year-old Holly Eaton and 27-year-old Nicholas Gutierrez are all behind bars Monday.

They were in a home on the 2400 block of 22nd Street Northwest when the Rochester police swat team moved in.

According to police, the drug bust happened at about 6 p.m. Friday.

Besides the three suspects, officers found meth and weapons inside the home.

A simultaneous bust was carried out at a home on the 2000 block of 48th Street Northwest.

No arrests were made there.

Officials say the area has an active Neighborhood Watch system in place, and we're told that there were many witnesses to the arrests Friday evening.

Residents in the neighborhood were reluctant to speak out on camera, because they fear there may be more busts in the near future, and didn't want to be recognized.
