TULSA, Oklahoma -- Officers with the Tulsa Police Department discovered a professional marijuana growing operation Saturday night.

Neighbors heard a woman's screams coming from a home in the Holliday Hills neighborhood, in the 3900 block of East 54th Street, and called police. 

While searching the home, police say they found the basement had been transformed into a nursery for pot. 

Officers pulled at least 60 mature plants from the house and dozens of smaller ones. Altogether, they're worth about $80,000.

"There were three small girls in the residence and we're talking to them and some of their other relatives," said Sgt. Mark Mears, Tulsa Police.

Police arrested three men related to the girls. Since officers didn't find any women in the home, they assume the screams must have come from the girls.
