Police busted a grow house on Friday night in a subdivision of Doral, with marijuana plants that had an estimated street value of about $130,000.

Authorities said they do have persons of interest but so far no arrests have been made.

Neighbors said the plants smelled even outside the home.

Authorities said it was not a sophistated operation.  There were exposed wires and leaking pipes. Plants were growing and also drying for sale, police said.

But neighbors said they would see people coming by a few times a week in the evening hours.

"I am super surprised. I have three little kids and they play around all day and they ride their bikes. It's shocking how they have been exposed or at risk of being exposed to such a horrible thing," said neighbor Claudia Chin.

Police had gotten anonymous calls complaining about the smell coming from the house.
