Complaint Leads To Drug Operation At Home; 2 Arrested

CREATED May 23, 2014
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A complaint led police to a large drug operation at a home in Antioch, and two people were arrested on multiple drug charges.

Officers with the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said they could smell marijuana inside the home on Painter Drive early Thursday morning when a man and a woman answered the door.

After obtaining a search warrant, they discovered multiple bags of marijuana, THC oil, heroin, cocaine, psychedelic mushrooms, and some prescription pills. Also found were digital scales, a drug vaporizer, and more than $9,300 in cash.

Police also found two loaded weapons inside the home.

Police arrested 24-year-old Andrew Prince and 22-year-old Taylor Beyrent on multiple drug offenses, including drug possession in a drug free school zone because the home is within 1000 feet of Thomas Edison Elementary School on Mt. View Road.

Prince allegedly told police the drugs belonged to him during an interview.
