The house, located in a gated community, was decorated for Halloween and children were living there.
On Thursday, police announced Darren Witty, 39, and Jolie Nevius, 38, were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of marijuana and conspiracy to violate the Uniform Controlled Substances Act.
Police additionally arrested Doyle Williams, 46, for parole violation.

The investigation was conducted by the Southern Nevada Cannabis and Regional Enforcement (SCORE) Team, a multi-jurisdictional drug control task force.
