GIBSONVILLE, N.C. -- Months of resident complaints about crime paid off Monday as Gibsonville Police arrested six people in a raid.

Residents on Minneola Street and several others have been complaining about crime since before Christmas.

On Monday, undercover agents searched for eight people wanted on more than a dozen charges.

"A lot this stems from citizen complaints in the area," said Detective Donnie Allred.

Besides the six arrests, police also found drugs, a gun, money and even a prescription pad stolen from a doctor.

Neighbors said Minneola used to be a thriving street filled with the working class, but now it has several problems with crime.

"There are drugs, alcohol, a lot of profanity on the streets, and men exposing themselves out in public. You feel unsafe when you've got small kids around," said a woman who lives on Minneola Street. "It's time for a clean-up movement. It's time for them to do what they need to do."

A total of four homes were raided on Monday.
