A Murfreesboro man is facing charges after police found a marijuana grow operation in his home.
    
According to WKRN-TV, officers last week visited the home of Jesse Duncan after receiving tips from concerned residents.
    
Authorities discovered that one of the rooms was being used for a hydroponic marijuana grow operation.
    
It reportedly contained processed marijuana and 131 individual marijuana plants, valued at $131,000.
    
Investigators plan to seek indictments against Duncan for felony manufacturing of marijuana and paraphernalia charges.
