SPOKANE, Wash.--No one was in custody Tuesday night after detectives found more than 150 pot plants inside a South Spokane home on Monday. Neighbors of the home said the police and fire response to the home was a waste. They said they supported the residents of the home.

Detectives received a search warrant for the home on 38th Avenue near Ferris High School after fire officials spotted drugs in the home on Monday.

Neighbors of the people who live in the home were upset with the police response. They said the response was a waste of money. They added the people who live in the home were good people with medical marijuana needs. 

Fire officials said it cost them a couple thousand dollars to send all of their personnel to the home on Monday.

One neighbor said the massive response was unnecessary. The neighbor of 20-years even said the two guns that detectives found were harmless.

“People are allowed to have guns,” said neighbor Anne Price. “As far as it being a drug house there’s no way. This is medical grow. The family is wonderful.”

Other neighbors agreed with Price. They said they supported the family.

Search warrant documents showed detective found mushrooms in a plastic bag, grow lights, grow hoods and 163 rooted marijuana plants.

Drug detectives said they were still investigating the case on Tuesday.
