A 23-year-old man faces several charges after he drove through several school zones with drugs in his vehicle.

According to an affidavit, the Drug Enforcement Agency watched packages being loaded into a vehicle on Acklen Drive in west Nashville.

Agents believed those packages were filled with marijuana. Officials tailed the vehicle through several schools zones to a home on Belle Oaks Place in Antioch.

They said as they entered the residence they could smell the marijuana, which prompted a search.

Inside, agents found approximately 20 pounds of marijuana, scales, and guns.

The man driving that vehicle, Milton Rader III, was charged with possessing drugs in a school zone.

He is expected to appear in court March 25.
