NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A husband and wife in Madison were charged Wednesday with manufacturing marijuana after police discovered a growing operation in a hidden room.

Police found the operation in a basement garage at a home in the 320 block of Shepherd Hills Drive.

Robert Burgeis, 37, and Daisy Burgeis, 25, are charged with possession of marijuana for resale, gun possession in the commission of a dangerous felony and possession of drug paraphernalia.

During the execution of a search warrant, officers discovered 50 plants in the grow room, an additional three and a half pounds of processed marijuana in an upstairs freezer and various other jars of processed marijuana.

In addition to the pistol Robert Burgeis was carrying, officers seized 12 pistols and eight long guns from the home.

When the bust occurred, officers said they were on Shepherd Hills Drive looking for a wanted person in an unrelated matter. During that investigation, they smelled marijuana while talking to the Burgeis couple in their front yard.

The couple claim they were growing the marijuana for sick friends.
