Randall Jeppesen, KSL NewsradioThree major drug operations were busted in Kearns in less than a month. And some residents are wondering what's happening to their usually quiet neighborhoods.

One resident, who lives near 6000 South and 6300 West, has his dog to keep strangers out of the yard, but he's worried about what's happening down the street. He says he sees more traffic at certain houses. He feels the neighborhood is going downhill.

Salt Lake County deputies made a big drug bust after receiving tips from residents. This week, they confiscated nearly 80 pounds of pot. Earlier this month, two other homes were raided in the area. Law enforcement officials found heroin, cocaine, assault rifles, and thousands in cash.

One resident says, "You just keep an eye out and call police when you see something." And people are calling police. This month, tips to authorities have resulted in shutting down two drug operations.
