Metro Police have charged a family of three with operating two separate hydroponic marijuana growing rooms in a detached garage and storage building behind a south Nashville home.

During the execution of a search warrant at 928 Drummond Drive on Saturday, police confiscated 56 marijuana plants, two pounds of processed marijuana, 22 firearms, four vehicles and $280 cash. Also confiscated were grow lights, timers, fertilization chemicals, generators and other various items.

In the raid, police arrested:

James Glidwell, 21, who is charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana for resale, violation of the Crooks with Guns law, and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond is set at $80,000.

Marion Bradshaw Jr., 46, (Glidwell’s stepfather) who is charged with the same offenses as Glidwell. His bond is set at $45,000.
 
Tiva Bradshaw, 43, (Glidwell’s mother and Marion Bradshaw’s wife) who is charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana for resale, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Her bond is set at $35,000.

“Drug operations such as this pose a significant risk of danger to not only those involved, but to innocent persons living in the neighborhood,” Chief Ronal Serpas said in a statement. “This is excellent work by South’s Crime Suppression team.”

Is this the same precinct that the Precinct Commander's secretary was being chauffered around by officers while they were on duty? They certainly can multi-task.

This wasn't a meth lab. Fertilizer is somewhat hazardous, but come on, this was hardly a danger to the local populace.

wow, guess it isn't just the "illegals" in the Nashville drug trade.

Zero,

Dealing drugs, and 22 firearms aren't exactly a safe combination for the local populace, is it?
