Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents and Metro Nashville Police officers seized dozens of marijuana plants in part of a multi-county grow operation.

The initial drug bust was the result of a two-year investigation by multiple law enforcement agencies including the MNPD, TBI and DEA.

A total of 11 people were arrested and several indoor marijuana grows were located and removed from rural Macon, Lewis, and DeKalb Counties on June 15.

Law enforcement also served more than a dozen search warrants in Nashville and Putnam, Cannon, Bedford, Macon, Sumner, Lewis and DeKalb Counties.

On Monday, June 20, officers seized 60 marijuana plants in Sumner County with a value of $150,000.
