Sheriff’s deputies serving a bank levy to a Donelson man Wednesday afternoon said they happened to find a cache of weapons and money as well as about 40 potted marijuana plants.
Metro police detectives were then called to dismantle the alleged marijuana grow operation inside an outbuilding behind 3213 Knobdale Road.
Deputies from the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office were there executing a civil $71,000 bank levy against the resident Donald L. Singer, 61.
Police said they also found six high-powered lights, two more potted marijuana plants, 36 mason jars of processed high-grade marijuana, several baggies of marijuana, three rifles, two shotguns, a .38-caliber pistol with bullets and $13,700 cash.
Singer who was home when the sheriff’s deputies arrived was charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana for resale, a crooks-with-guns law violation and possession of drug paraphernalia.
