Metro police arrested two men in South Nashville Wednesday on drug charges for allegedly accepting a marijuana delivery from California.
The Metro Nashville Police Department received a tip about a Fed Ex package en route from California to Thuss Avenue in South Nashville. The canine unit confirmed the presence of narcotics in the package.
Police executed a search warrant when the package was delivered to the home of John Paul Barker, 30, and his roommate, Stephen Ray Jones, 62. Jones claimed that he grew the marijuana in California.
Police seized 12.5 pounds of marijuana, an assault-type rifle, two computers and two guitars from the home. Barker and Jones are facing drug and gun charges.
Barker was free on $12,500 bond while Jones remained jailed on Thursday in lieu of $5,000 bond.
