MIAMI, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Police called to a report of a fight between neighbors in Miami said they found cocaine, marijuana, 10 grenades and a pig in one of the homes.

Miami police said officers arrived in the neighborhood around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and they soon discovered the drugs and a weapon inside one of the homes, The Miami Herald reported Wednesday.
