S02E15-Brown Residence front door

"They were mine, actually. Trying to quit. Can we help you?"

After seeing a picture of Frebeaux with his family, including his real sister, courtesy of Frebeaux's friend Morris Gilroy, Joan Watson shows up to the Brown residence with police and a warrant to search the house. She mentions Rachel Brown throwing away a pack of Double T cigarettes during her previous visit, the only brand that Frebeaux smokes, and how the house reeked of the smell. Cliff Brown appears and says they were his cigarettes and that he's been trying to quit. When Watson makes a comment about them cashing Frebeaux's benefit checks, Brown steps closer to Watson and says that Frebeaux isn't there. However, Watson has a warrant to search their house.

Brown and his wife follow the police into the hallway, where Watson finds a padlocked door beneath their staircase. When an officer comes forth to break the lock, Brown steps forward as if to stop them, but he is stopped by his wife instead. The couple is taken into custody after police find three homeless men imprisoned in their basement.
