A domestic disturbance call turned into a drug bust in Northwest Fresno.

Authorities say 26-year-old Samantha Willhoit and her boyfriend, 42-year-old Emory Pino were making honey oil at a home near Figarden and Brawley.

Police went to the house Tuesday night after a report, that Willhoit had been hit in the face by her boyfriend's brother. During their investigation, officers say they found large bags of marijuana in the home and inside Willhoit's car. They also found containers used to package and distribute honey oil, a product made with pot.

Willhoit was arrested, but police are still looking for Pino. Authorities say another man may also be involved, but he has not yet been identified.
