The Anchorage Police Department has served warrants to three people in a "problem house" off Huffman Road, on Thursday.

“Residents had been notifying APD of multiple shots fired and suspected stolen vehicles at the residence,” said Nora Morse, a spokesperson with APD.

On scene, police located "at least" one stolen vehicle and a stolen trailer, according to Morse.

Morse identifies the three suspects as Nicholas Randazzo, Rebecca Hunter and Virginia Hunter.

“Randazzo was arrested on an unrelated felony warrant and was charged with resisting arrest and misconduct involving a controlled substance in the fourth-degree,” said Morse.

APD says Rebecca Hunter was arrested on an unrelated misdemeanor warrant and was charged with resisting arrest. And Virginia Hunter was charged with resisting arrest.

A nearby neighbor, who did not wish to be identified, said the area has been “under siege” by the nuisance neighbors.

Another neighbor says she witnessed problems related to drugs in public schools and all over Anchorage, “We had problems with people breaking into our cars a couple of weeks ago, just about two weeks ago, so I think it’s very frightening. I think that this is hopefully an awakening to police that we need to cover this situation and the problems we’re having in our town,” said Olivia Campbell.

APD says the

partnered with the Community Action Policing team (CAP), in order to serve the warrants and make the arrests.

The ISU also assisted in the arrest of three people on Wednesday
