SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Five people have been arrested in a drug bust at a home in Sparks where police say they were growing marijuana and producing hash oil.

Sparks police and a regional SWAT team descended on the house with a search warrant Tuesday near Red Hawk Golf Course in Wingfield Springs.

Five people ages 22 to 29 were taken into custody and booked on suspicion of a variety of charges including unlawfully producing or possessing 12 marijuana plants, possession with intent to sell a controlled substance and destroying or concealing evidence.

Two of the suspects also are accused of child neglect after police say a 4-year-old child was found at the home.

In addition to the illegal marijuana crop, police say they found evidence of a hash oil operation inside the house.
