Two Hendersonville men were arrested last week after marijuana plants were discovered in their home by police who were searching for two juvenile runaways.
After receiving information that the two juveniles may have been at a home on Cherokee Road, police arrived at the home just after midnight on Sept. 22, according to an HPD news release. Officers obtained a search warrant after noticing the intense smell of marijuana coming from the home, according to police.
Once inside, police discovered nine marijuana plants, cash, guns and paraphernalia during the search.
One of the home’s residents, Mark Hoover, 48, was charged with Manufacture, Delivery, or Selling a Schedule VI Drug.
Another resident, James Flores, 50, was charged with Manufacture, Delivery, or Selling a Schedule VI Drug, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon.
Flores was booked into the Sumner County Jail on a $25,000 bond. Hoover’s bond was set at $10,000. Both men are scheduled to appear in Sumner County General Sessions Court at 9 a.m. on Nov. 9.
The missing juveniles were located by police later in the day on Sept. 22 in Hendersonville, according to HPD Commander Janel Rogan.
