Henderson homeowner arrested after marijuana grow house raid

A multijurisdictional task force arrested a homeowner and seized dozens of marijuana plants after raiding a grow house in Henderson on Thursday night.

Metro Police Lt. Joe Martin said a Metro search warrant was served at about 6 p.m. at 341 Pinnacle Court, near Green Valley Parkway and Warm Springs Road. In the raid, police uncovered 54 marijuana plants, five pounds of ready-for-sale pot, and two grams of methamphetamine, Martin said.

Martin said officers arrested the home's owner, Thomas Asgeirsson, on felony charges including possession with intent to sell marijuana and methamphetamine.

A tip from neighbors led law enforcement to investigate the residence, Martin said.
