EDMOND, Oklahoma -

Six people are arrested after police discover more than a hundred pounds of high-grade marijuana and a street value of almost half a million dollars.

It all started when OKC police officers were at the Quizno’s off NE 10th St. and witnessed a drug deal. They arrested two people and recovered a pound of high-grade hydroponic pot and almost $5,000 in cash. That then led them to two houses in Edmond where they hit the mother lode.

A total of six people were arrested in Tuesday night's major drug bust. Police from both OKC and Edmond executed a search warrant on this home in the Lone Oak neighborhood near NW 150th and Macarthur. They also got help from the FBI.

“We just saw a bunch of police cars and there were police men outside standing in the driveway. A lot of them!” said Kayla Watson. 

Watson has lived here about a year and says she never noticed any trouble coming from the house police searched. 

“Of all the houses, I've never seen anybody come or go from that house,” recalls Watson.

That's why she was surprised to hear police arrested the young mother who lived there. And even more stunned to discover they found more than 18 pounds of marijuana inside.

News 9 ran into the mother of one of the people arrested outside the home, but she did not want to talk about what happened.

Police also raided this house in the 300 block of Brighton Dr. in Edmond; A house very close to Edmond North High School.

Inside they found more than 85 pounds of hydroponic marijuana, 2 pounds of mushrooms, 2 pistols and more than $50,000 in cash.

All told police say this added up to more than $700,000 worth of drugs; Drugs that are now off the streets.
