SALMON CREEK, Wash. (KOIN) — A neighborhood Easter egg hunt was marred by the threat of violence and a police response that found an unlicensed marijuana business and $108,000.

The incident began around 6 p.m. in the Salmon Creek neighborhood, Clark County Sheriff’s Office said, when a man ran into the neighborhood screaming his roommate was going to shoot him.

When police responded, they found a pot operation in a home at 13318 NE 3rd Court. Authorities said they found more than 45 pounds of pot and $100,000 in cash during a search. They also seized 5 vehicles believed involved in the business.

“It smelled like marijuana,” neighbor Breein Scarlett said. “Overpowering smells.”

It’s believed the business was delivering pot throughout the U.S.

Three people were arrested: Charles J. Yorkovich, 24, Joseph E. Sullivan, 24, and Jordan M. Long, 27. All are from Vancouver.

Yorkovich faces a charge of possession with intent to deliver, while Sullivan and Long were booked on felony drug warrants from Missouri.

The investigation continues.
