An investigation by undercover detectives from the Metro Police Department's South Precinct led to Thursday night's execution of a search warrant that led to the discovery of a marijuana grow operation in a South Nashville home.
Police found the marijuana plants in the closet of an upstairs bedroom in a home at 536 Doral Country Dr.
Officers seized 22 marijuana plants, three grow lights, two filters and two fans.
Police said they also found six grams of processed marijuana, a glass marijuana bong, two smoking pipes and a marijuana grinder.
Homeowner Nancy C. Hall, 59, a teacher at Old Center Elementary School in Goodlettsville, and her son, Liam De Jongh-Hall, who also lives at the residence, are charged with manufacturing marijuana, unlawful marijuana possession and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.
Police said both were released from jail after each posted $10,500 bond.
Officers said Nancy Hall claimed ownership of the marijuana plants.
Detectives were told the marijuana was being grown for personal medicinal use.
