A pre-dawn raid sends a couple to jail and yields thousands of dollars worth of drugs.

Neighbors are stunned and say they've never noticed anything suspicious on the quiet cul de sac.

It all started when U.S. Marshals knocked on the door at 1989 Gina Drive in Tallahassee just before sun up today.

They had gone to arrest a man on outstanding warrants and noticed marijuana on the coffee table, LCSO deputies say.

A search warrant turned up this: more than 25-thousand dollars worth of pot, three guns and more than 37-thousand dollars in cash.

Drug agents say the marijuana was stashed in ziploc bags and mason jars, and the cash was hidden in lots of places.

"The money was stashed in some work boots. Some was in some clothing. Some was hidden in a shelf in a spare bedroom closet as well as a good pile of it was right on the nightstand," said SGT Ed Cook, with the Leon County Sheriff's Office.

25 year old Nicholas Kerr and 29 year old Greta Jackson were both arrested and accused of maintaining a drug house and possession of marijuana with the intent to sell it.

Kerr also faces three violation of probation charges that initially brought marshals to their door.

Kerr and Jackson will go before a judge tomorrow morning.

On December 14, 2010, members of the Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force served several VOP arrest warrants on Nicholas Kerr at 1989 Gina Drive.

While inside the residence, task force members observed several small bags of cannabis and bundled currency.

LCSO’s Vice Unit obtained a search warrant for the residence. During the search, three firearms, 5 pounds of cannabis, $37,690 cash, a money counter, scales, baggies, and a vacuum sealer were seized.

Nicholas Kerr, 25, and Greta Jackson, 29, were arrested and taken to the Leon County Jail.
