COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A house party left neighbors upset, garbage everywhere, and hundreds of people crowded in the street.

It was gunfire and loud music that prompted a neighbor to call police when the party got out of control.

Police report once they arrived at the home on Longview Drive in Columbus numerous cars were blocking the flow of traffic and it appeared to be at least 200 people there including minors.

Garbage littered the yard of the corner lot home.  Once authorities were inside the home they said a sound coming from a closet caught their attention.

Police arrested Terrence Dennis, 20, after finding five marijuana plants hidden in a closet.

Dennis pled not guilty to five counts of possession, manufacturing, and distribution of a controlled substance and maintaining a disorderly house.  Four of the possession charges were dismissed on grounds of not being usual protocol for charges.

Officers also reported finding marijuana in the kitchen sink drain. 

Dennis' bond has been set at $15,500. He remains in the Muscogee County jail.
