"We heard what sounded like thunder and then we realized that it wasn't thunder and so I woke my wife up and then my daughter and we saw the activity down there," Mike Westmoreland said.

Witnesses said deputies in the street pointed guns at the house and that a woman was taken into custody.

"They had the FBI and the sheriff and they had drug dogs in the house and all that."

Neighbors said they've seen traffic around the house for weeks.

"Cars that come by there only there for like five minutes and they are right back out all hours of the night. We knew that something was going on so it did not surprise us."
