Smyrna was recently the site of a bust of a large grow operation for marijuana. The police have released some initial images from the building.
A joint agency operation between the Smyrna Police Department, Metro Police Department and the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office resulted in the discovery of a very sophisticated, indoor marijuana grow operation at 783 Miller Estates Road in Smyrna. This operation used a sophisticated hydroponics system that could produce approximately $250,000 worth of marijuana for resale per year.
All materials related to this grow operation were seized and several weapons as well as over $1000 in cash was recovered from the home.
