CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A 32-year-old Clarksville man was arrested after authorities found more than two pounds of synthetic marijuana and ecstasy inside his home.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office booked Robert Nolen on Friday on charges of possession of an imitation controlled substance and possession of MDMA.

Authorities found the items during a search at his home Old Trenton Road.

The 19th Judicial District Drug Task Force and Fort Campbell Criminal Investigation Division were also involved in the investigation.

“Synthetic THC has been illegal in Tennessee for some time,” said Sgt. Kyle Darnell, Director of the 19th Judicial District Drug Task Force. “The penalties for synthetic and regular THC are roughly the same in this instance.”

Nolen was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on $50,000 bond.
