There are several different ways police discover that a home may have illegal drugs inside. Most commonly these are discovered through tips that are given to police. In Greenville, NC police discovered that drugs were located in a residence because the officer could see street signs hanging on the wall inside of a home. The home was a frat house at East Carolina University. An officer was patrolling the area and could see in plain view a lot of street signs hanging on the walls in the front room of the home. After seeing this police searched the home and seized the street signs because they were stolen.

Police who searched the home also found marijuana that was packaged to be re-sold, a digital scale, Adderall pills, and $80 in cash. Three men were arrested in connection with the drugs. The charges against them include Possession with Intent to Sell and Deliver marijuana, maintaining a dwelling for the purpose of selling controlled substances, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
