BLUE ASH, OH (FOX19) - A tip from a neighbor led Blue Ash police to seize 220 pounds of marijuana on Wednesday.

A resident of an apartment building at 3793 Fox Run Dr. called police after noticing a strong smell of marijuana, according to authorities. Police served a search warrant to apartment #206 where the smell originated.

Blue Ash police say they found 220 pounds of marijuana inside. The marijuana was packaged into half-pound bricks and has an estimated street value of approximately $225,000, according to police.
