A family-friendly Easter event took a wrong turn in a suburban neighborhood in Vancouver, Washington. 

During an Easter egg hunt Saturday, a man ran toward the crowd, screaming that his roommates were going to shoot him. The Clark County Sheriff's Office responded and learned the root of the problem was a large, unlicensed marijuana sale. 

After getting a search warrant, deputies found over 45 pounds of processed marijuana and over $108,000 of suspected drug proceeds. Officials believe that the marijuana was going to be delivered across the U.S.
