Prompted by information from the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, officers with the MJPD Crime Suppression Unit executed a search warrant at the home, reportedly discovering a large drug operation.

An MJPD official said 775 marijuana plants were found, along with an additional 10 pounds of processed marijuana, 5 grams of powder cocaine and thousands of dollars in equipment used to grow marijuana. The total street value of the processed marijuana is said to be more than $100,000 and the potential value of the plants was well in excess of $1 million, the Mt. Juliet Police official said.

All the drug materials, two vehicles and over $3,000 in cash were also reportedly seized in the investigation.

"It is humbling to know that law enforcement neighbors can work together in a joint effort to root out drugs and their collateral public safety dangers throughout our communities," said MJPD Deputy Chief James Hambrick.
