Police originally showed up to a house on Saddle River Road because they got a call that 27-year-old Nicholas Loiola was going after his brother with a baseball bat. When police got to the house, they say they got a whiff of something else. The officers called the smell of marijuana coming from the house overwhelming.Investigators obtained a search warrant and came back to find what they say was a sophisticated marijuana-growing operation. More than 50 plants and two handguns were seized from the house and Loiola was arrested.
