D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -
Barkwood Circle in D'Iberville is a quiet street where, for the most part, everyone knows their neighbors, but there is one house on the street that was a mystery.
Neighbor Darrian Brown said, "I heard he worked offshore but he would come home one time and leave and come back at night and leave."
Thursday evening drug agents raided the home at 332 Barkwood Circle and inside they found 286 pot plants, 12 pounds of processed marijuana, candy suckers which allegedly contained THC a chemical found in pot, computers, lights and other growing equipment.
Several neighbors said they would have never expected it, they never smelled anything or noticed anything suspicious but it disturbs them to know this was in their neighborhood where there children play outside all the time.
One neighbor, who did not want to be identified, admits she knew something fishy was going on because she saw the man bringing things to the house periodically.
"Lighting equipment was the biggest thing besides that not much, but we were gone a lot, too," the neighbor said. "When we did see him bringing in there it was quick get in there and get out you know I guess to just water it.
She said she contacted police months ago and is glad something was finally done.
"That place could catch on fire, and I have a nine-month-old; you know? It really hits home when you have friends in this neighborhood that you love and care for. You rather just see someone renting it out for a house not a cultivating farm," the neighbor said.
Officers believe the house was used strictly for growing marijuana and no one actually lived there.
Authorities hope to make arrests soon and are continuing to process the evidence and gather more information.
This is the ninth home agents with the Coastal Narcotics Enforcement Team have busted in Harrison and Jackson Counties since October.
