    Authorities responded to a routine medical call on Thursday and ended up seizing drugs, guns, cash, and much more.

    Authorities also found supplies used for the manufacturing, packaging, and transportation of narcotics, according to police.

    "It's really disturbing.  I mean, you don't know who lives near you," said one neighbor who asked not to be identified.

    Police arrested Marotta and charged him with operating a drug factory, illegal possession, possession with intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana.

    He was arraigned on the charges Friday in Middletown Superior Court, according to police.
