Something strange in the air led to an arrest. Neighbors complained of a strange odor coming from a house at 1941 S. Texas Street in Salt Lake City, and it wasn't just the chemicals that the owner was using to refine gold.

Police spokesperson Lara Jones said, "They also discovered that Steele and his friends were making and smoking crack cocaine in the garage."

Officers also spotted two marijuana plants growing next to the tomatoes. Jones said, "Seized from the property we have cocaine, two marijuana plants and drug paraphernalia."

William Steele is charged with possession of controlled substances.
