PEARLAND, Texas Police busted a grow house Saturday after discovering hundreds of marijuana plants inside a Pearland home.

The Pearland Police Department was tipped off by a post on their website that there was an odd smell coming from the neighborhood.

Occasionally when I m doing yard work there was like a skunk smell, when the wind is blowing, you would just get this odor of a skunk smell, said neighbor Ashley Black.

When police took a look inside the house on Catamaran Cove Drive, they found more than 440 plants worth nearly $1 million.

The man who lives at the home, Hou The Fam, 36, was arrested.

Police Sgt. David Mayville, who s been on the force for 20 years, said the plants were some of the best he has ever seen.

That s crazy, you never expect something like that to be happening in your neighborhood. I guess you never know, said neighbor Jerome Floyd.
