Undercover narcotics officers arrested three people and seized $45,000 worth of drugs Thursday.

Officers arrested Eric Vasquez, Bernardo Dizon and Melanie Sheldon at a home on Monica Drive near Jet Wing and Fountain.

Police say the operation involved four undercover buys. During those buys they seized enough marijuana to make more than 10,000 joints, 1,073 ecstasy pills, 30 grams of methamphetamine, 18 grams of psilocybin mushrooms and a .45 caliber assault weapon.

Neighbors say they don't know if drugs were ever sold out of the house, but they're glad it's no longer a possibility.

"The uncomfortable part about that is it can be happening anywhere, any of these houses, on these homes on this street and you just never know," said Marilyn Braswell.
