LA VERGNE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man was arrested after a marijuana grow operation, firearms and packaged marijuana were found inside a La Vergne home last week.

Police reportedly discovered the items when a search warrant was served at the Waldron Road home of 54-year-old Vincent Plummer.

La Vergne police reported they found separate grow operations inside the home, including 15 marijuana plants, 27 pounds of processed marijuana and 240 capsules containing TCH derived from the marijuana.

Officers seized $23,000 in cash from Plummer’s home and estimated the marijuana to be valued around $134,400.

Detectives reportedly confiscated 15 THC vapor smoking devices, four handguns, an AR-15 and AK-47 rifle, a shotgun and sub rifle from the home.

“The guns were loaded and ready to go throughout the house,” said narcotics lieutenant Jason Mathis. “The investigation is continuing.”

Plummer was booked into the Rutherford County jail and charged with two counts of manufacturing marijuana, possession of a weapon in commission of a felony, maintaining a dwelling for the use of drugs and felony possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on a $39,000.
