LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say they've tallied the drugs and cash found Tuesday inside a Las Vegas-area home after a burglary call led officers to the discovery.

Las Vegas Police said Wednesday that a drug task force seized 260 pounds of marijuana, nearly five pounds of ecstasy originally thought to be cocaine, 45 pounds of psychedelic mushrooms, nearly seven pounds of concentrated and hash THC and THC lip balm, more than 5 grams of LSD and Xanax each, about 58 grams of the drug "spice" and about $140,000 cash.

Police say they arrested five burglary suspects, all juveniles, after they returned to the house in the 2000 block of Brassy Drive while officers were still there.

The investigation is ongoing and so far no arrests have been made in connection with the drugs.
