Two suspects were arrested in a major cocaine bust at a Donelson home. 

Officials with Metro Nashville Police said they raided a home on Crestline Drive Thursday night and found nearly 22 pounds of cocaine.

Reports indicated that it could have a street value of hundreds of thousands of dollars. More than $100,000 in cash was also found in the home.  

According to an affidavit, Oscar Anchondo and Daniela Romo were running a large-scale distribution ring while collecting huge cash profits. Police said 13 empty kilo wrappers were found, along with a large digital scale.

The arrests come after a lengthy drug investigation into distribution of large quantities of cocaine in Davidson County.

Many neighbors were shocked to learn of the raid, and said the area is a quiet neighborhood.

“It was really going under the radar,” said neighbor Mark Dickerson. “I live across the street, you know, we see a lot of cars, but had no idea that anything like this was going on.”

Both were charged with engaging in a cocaine conspiracy, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
