NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metro police have uncovered a large marijuana grow operation.  An investigation by undercover officers led to the execution of two separate search warrants at two homes on Myrtle Street in East Nashville.

Investigators found hydroponic grow setups in two rooms of a home in the 400 block of Myrtle Street. More than 60 marijuana plants were seized, along with water pumps, heaters, lamps, timers, and other equipment.

Christopher Todd Harlan, 50, was arrested at the home and charged with manufacturing marijuana in a drug-free zone and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.

A few houses up the street, detectives seized 1.2 pounds of processed marijuana in the 600 block of Myrtle Street. Police say about half the pot was packaged for resale. 

Police also recovered a .38 caliber pistol, digital scales, and other drug paraphernalia. The resident, Reva Gross, 40, was charged with felony marijuana possession, gun possession in the commission of a dangerous felony and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.

She was released from jail after posting a $6,000 bond. No connection between Harlan and Gross has been established.
