Metro police seized a large amount of drugs and weapons during a raid Thursday night at a home in the Belmont/12 South area.

Officers raided the home on Ferguson Avenue off Granny White Pike near Sevier Park after detectives developed evidence that marijuana was being processed there.

More than 40 marijuana plants, approximately 10 pounds of processed marijuana, marijuana brownies and 10 grams of mushrooms, along with a shotgun and nine millimeter semi-automatic pistol were seized from the residence.

The owner, George Van Tassel III, 37, is charged with several felony drug and weapons possession offenses.

He was booked into the Metro jail on a $37,000 bond.
