The bust happened at an apartment complex on Colorado Boulevard near E. 13th Avenue.

Denver Police say the bust was the product of an eight-month-long investigation.

Police arrested 14 people on drug-related charges. Five of the 14 were arrested for felonies. One of them had three outstanding felony warrants.

"You've got a situation where you've got, in a neighborhood where people don't want this going on," said Denver Police Spokesman Sonny Jackson. "They don't want this kind of activity going on where people are selling drugs right in the middle of the community like this . . . or period, so this is a situation where we're trying to let them know hey, this is not going to happen."

Authorities say they have recovered drugs in three of the four apartments.

The drug bust is not related to an officer-involved shooting in the same area earlier this month when an altercation led an officer to shoot a suspect in the side.
