While serving an arrest warrant, Metro Nashville Police officers seized guns, cocaine, heroin, marijuana and more than $10,000 in cash from one home.

Officers served an arrest warrant at 1731 Edgewood Avenue, but when police said Keanthoney Dalton opened the door, the smell of marijuana was so strong officers immediately began searching the home.

That's when they found three handguns (one reported stolen), 110.1 grams of cocaine, 56.4 grams of heroin, 111 grams of marijuana, one vehicle, and $10,144 cash.

Dalton, who lives in the home, was not he the person wanted in the warrant, but was taken into custody. 

Undercover agents then seized more items from the home. They located the guns under a couch cushion, the drugs in a bathroom air vent, and most of the money inside the kitchen dishwasher.

Dalton, who has previous cocaine and theft convictions, was charged Monday with gun possession by a convicted felon, gun possession during the commission of a drug offense, felony cocaine, marijuana, and heroin possession in a drug free school zone, and theft. 

Dalton was held in lieu of $125,000 bond.
