Late Monday evening, a joint task force descended on 565 Headtown Road in Jonesborough to serve a search warrant and found the drug operation, Graybeal said in a news release.

"Officers were surprised by the sophisticated operation that they encountered inside the residence," Graybeal said in the news release.
