Jeesh, it's like the most crime ridden part of the city!
The Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office said deputies served a search warrant at 7228 S. 179th St. on Thursday afternoon in reference to a marijuana growing operation.
Authorities seized about 100 plants, varying in size from four to six feet, from the home.
"There were marijuana plants growing in the basement. They also had some marijuana drying in some upstairs closets," said Lt. Mike Erhart.
The person who was taken into custody was not identified by the Sheriff’s Office.
Neighbors said they never suspected a thing.
"Didn't suspect anything. Didn't have any idea," said Justin Klahn.
"We started to build a relationship with them, friendships. They gave us a Christmas gift. My daughter would play with their dogs," said Jenny Klahn.
"It's disappointing. They seemed like nice guys, but of course I don't want that in my neighborhood and around my kids," said Spencer Lombardo.
