Investigators say they found more than 100 marijuana plants, several firearms and suspected illegal narcotics in the home, but those substances are being tested.

“It’s shocking, absolutely shocking,” one neighbor told CBS4, who ask that her identity not be revealed.

This is the second time this home has been associated with a grow. Police conducted another operation in May of 2016 where at least one person was arrested.

“It’s a problem,” the neighbor said. “We fear for our children, our safety, the safety of our children.”

Authorities and public records confirm same person has owned the home at the time of both stings. That man also owns another home on Coolidge Way that was raided three time since May of 2016.

“The owner, I think, is specifically staying at arm’s length so he’s not accountable even though he’s responsible for bringing these tenants in every time,” the neighbor said.

Aurora police are not publicly releasing the homeowner’s name, adding he’s not being charged at this time.

“We are investigating to determine if there is any involvement by the owner of the properties,” Officer Kenneth Forrest explained.

CBS4 reached out to owner of the houses, but those calls went unanswered or phone numbers listed under his name are disconnected.
