Oliver Springs police seized almost 15 pounds of marijuana, several firearms, and drug paraphernalia during a raid at a home on Wilson Road on Sunday night, according to WYSH Radio in Clinton.
WYSH reported that police found 13 firearms, several boxes of ammunition, two homemade gun silencers, two vehicles, and paraphernalia including scales and assorted equipment that could be used to grow marijuana.
The radio station said three people were arrested: William Phillips, 44; Hannah Phillips, 22; and Benjamin Davis, 20. They were taken to the Roane County Jail on drug and weapons charges, WYSH said.
