NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A drug bust by undercover detectives led to the arrest of two convicted felons and the confiscation of guns and drugs.

Detectives executed a search warrant Monday at known felon Ramell Webster's home on Douglas Avenue. Inside, they found him and 42-year-old Caddias House of Murfreesboro with a half-pound of heroin, five guns (two of which were stolen), ammunition, more than $2,600 cash, and a hydraulic press in the kitchen that was used to compress heroin into brick form.

Webster’s 2015 Cadillac sedan was also seized under the belief that it was acquired with drug proceeds.

House was found with holding nearly 1,000 Xanax pills as officers approached. The discovery of the pills led West Precinct detectives to enlist the help of the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office in executing a search warrant at House’s Murfreesboro apartment. Found inside, were 2,500 Xanax pills and $8,000 cash. House’s 2012 Dodge Challenger car was also seized under the belief that it was funded with drug money.

Webster’s bond on multiple gun and heroin charges is set at $151,500. House’s bond on the Nashville Xanax charge is set at $10,000
