Local law enforcement found a haul of cash, drugs, weapons and more Thursday in a Lebanon home.

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Division, in a joint investigation with the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Department, executed a search warrant at 14 Bellevue Dr. Thursday at about 10:15 p.m.

Upon searching the home, detectives found and seized a large amount of cash that they believed were proceeds from the sale of narcotics. 

Additionally, detectives also seized a felony amount of high-grade marijuana, a bulletproof vest, drug paraphernalia, semi-automatic pistols and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition.

No arrest has been made yet, according to detectives. 

Detectives have also interviewed and obtained a statement from a suspect in the case. 

They will request indictments on other specific individuals who occupied the home pending a Grand Jury investigation.
