Two brothers are under arrest after Port St. Lucie police say they executed a search warrant and found flakka at a home in the city.

Police say they made the bust at 693 SW Nichols Terrace Wednesday.

In addition to flakka, which police say was found in a Ziploc bag labeled 'Robert's Homemade Snow', detectives say they discovered hypodermic needles.

Police arrested Robert and Brian Szika.

Neighbors say the two would sometimes come around and ask for money. This was concerning to many, who say they also observed a lot of traffic at the house.

Within the last two months police say there was two overdoses at the home, one in December. It resulted in the death of Dennis Medeiros.

On Thursday, Szika's mother came to the door but did not wish to comment. 

Robert faces charges of possession of synthetic narcotics with intent to sell. Brian faces a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Both were booked into the St. Lucie County Jail.
