A month-long investigation into the cultivation and distribution of marijuana in Davidson and Williamson Counties led to Tuesday night’s arrest of two men and the seizure of 58 marijuana plants from a mobile home in West Nashville.
William Leader, 52, of 7260 Lake Road in Fairview, and David M. Hall, 28, of 1100 Acklen Avenue in Nashville, are both charged with manufacturing marijuana, possession of marijuana for resale and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Leader was stopped by a Fairview police officer Tuesday for a traffic violation. Inside the trunk of his vehicle was a quantity of marijuana. Leader was brought to Nashville and interviewed by narcotics detectives, resulting in a police search last evening of property at 7669-A Sullivan Hollow Road off of Old Charlotte Pike. There, detectives recovered 58 marijuana plants in various stages of growth, two pounds of processed marijuana and equipment used for cultivation. As officers were about to leave, Hall arrived. Inside his vehicle were items believed to be used to maintain the grow operation as well as three mason jars of high-grade marijuana.
Leader is jailed in lieu of $55,000 bond. Hall is being held in lieu of $27,500 bond.
