The Orange County home is on Peppertree Drive and authorities believes it's linked to other grow houses.

Resident Sonny Wong walked out of his home on Peppertree Drive and saw Sheriff's Office drug investigators raiding his neighbor's house.

"(They were) coming out with stuff, I don't know what," Wong said.

According to investigators, Yoendris Rodriguez and his wife Dayana Rodriguez was arrested in connection with the marijuana grow house.
