Authorities found more than 15 pounds of cocaine and seven firearms.  It happened at 9:30 last night.

Pasco Police Captain Jim Raymond said, "For this area.  This far north into the interior of this country that's a fairly major seizure of cocaine for one event."

Rico Rivera also lives in the neighborhood.  He said, "I don't know why these people are selling drugs. At this moment i'm very scared because in this neighborhood so many people are selling drugs. I don't know why."
