A Broussard man is causing controversy in his neighborhood after placing a big sign that reads "Dope house. Buyers beware" in his yard.

KATC reports Gavin Okerson has put the sign up to warn police about possible drug activity in his neighborhood.

The sign is located on South Jefferson Street in Broussard, and has Okerson's neighbors confused.

Okerson tells KATC "Seventeen vehicles in and out within 3 hours. I'm not going to let my family tolerate this any longer. I knew that I had to do something immediately so that our children learn it's not our job to sit on the sideline. I am a lion hear me roar."

When asked which house in particular he was referring to, he told KATC he couldn't give specifics.

Police are reportedly investigating the claims.
