VANCOUVER, Wash. — Clark County Sheriff’s deputies uncovered a massive drug stash, after a screaming man interrupted a community Easter egg hunt Saturday evening.

Deputies were called to Vancouver’s Salmon Creek neighborhood just after 6 p.m. on reports of a man yelling that his roommates were going to shoot him.

Deputies secured a search warrant for the house and uncovered a large-scale, unlicensed marijuana operation.

Over 45 pounds of pot was seized, with an estimated street value of $202,000.

Another $108,000 dollars in suspected drug money was also taken by law enforcement.

Three suspects were booked into the Clark County Jail on drug-related charges.
