Hilliard Police Make Historic Drug Bust


UPDATED: Wednesday May 22, 2013 11:26 PM

Hilliard police say they served a search warrant on a home on Farley Drive and discovered more than 100 marijuana plants inside.

"The neighbors last night were just amazed," said Hilliard Police Chief Doug Francis.
 
The discovery is the largest in the city in the past 2 -years, according to Francis.
 
"It was so large I will tell you this when you got up to the front door you could smell the marijuana coming from the home," said Francis.
 
Those who live next door to the home say they always thought something was going on based on cars coming and going at all times of the day and night.
 
Christina Saap lives two doors down from the house.  "You could be outside and there would be a really weird smell in the air and I was like something was going on," said Sapp
 
Hilliard Police give credit to citizens who decided to call and complain about issues at the home.   Police say the bust is an example of what the department can do when homeowners and police work together.
 
No charges have been filed yet, but police say they do have a person of interest.
