Metro Nashville Police officers arrested and charged three teens after searching a Nashville home.

MNPD's Juvenile Crime Task Force followed up on information concerning teens involved with guns and marijuana Monday night.

They served a search warrant at a home on the 300 block of Elysian Fields Road. Inside they seized two pounds of marijuana, 5,217 Xanax bars, 1.5 ounces of hallucinogenic mushrooms, 3.4 ounces of hashish, two handguns, and a rifle.

Brandon Caruthers, 16, who had been wanted for several months for his alleged involvement in an August 5 armed robbery in South Nashville, was taken into custody.  He was charged in Juvenile Court with aggravated robbery for that case.

Two other teens, both age 16, were also arrested and charged in Juvenile Court with multiple felony drug counts and gun possession during the commission of a felony.

An adult woman who was in the home at the time, 49-year-old Jennifer Tran was charged with felony drug possession, gun possession in the commission of a felony, and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  She is free in lieu of $60,500 bond.
