Neighbors say the original search police warrant was for items that were recently stolen from a local marina.
"I see them, being neighbors I'm going to see the people anyway, but what they were doing over there, I don't know because I like to mind my own business, it's safer," said neighbor Johnny Battey.
"Yeah, there's always kids running around, so that's bad," another neighbor added. "Anything can happen. Yeah, we get off work and there's kids running down the street all the time, so it's scary just to know we walk by it every day."
