Near east 16th Street and Russell Road in Mounds, there's a house that sits less than 400 feet from Mounds Elementary School.
Officers say there were three kids inside the home, ages 13, 12 and 9.
FOX23 went to the residence and spoke with neighbor Gina Brumley, who lives next door.
She explains what she heard was the tactical team coming into her neighbor's home,
"Just a whole bunch of lights and loud popping."
Brumley was there as police arrested the couple.
"It sounded like gunshots but I'm sure it wasn't, but just a lot of mess going on," Brumley explains.
The tactical team was raiding the house, which has signs that say private property.
One sign asks you to wash your hands before entering.
If they were concerned about germs, police say they weren't concerned about exposing their children to drugs.
One of the biggest concerns that neighbors had was that this elementary school sits a few hundred feet away from where this house where the drugs were found.
Inside the home they found almost a pound and a half of marijuana, scales, pipes, grinders, and packaging materials.
Police also discovered $2,000 in cash and five marijuana plants.
The couple had hand-written notes that showed thousands of dollars' worth of pot had been sold at the house.
For police, it seems like a pretty easy case, the couple faces numerous drug-related and child endangerment charges.
However, for Brumley's son, it's harder.
Brumley said he was devastated, "He actually started crying."
He used to play with the couple's children.
"So he was crying and he didn't know what was going on."
