MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- A 54-year-old man is facing multiple charges after being arrested Sunday on suspicion of selling marijuana out of his Palmer Drive house.

Robby L. Gann, who lives in the 900 block of Palmer Drive off Middle Tennessee Boulevard, has been charged with felony possession of a Schedule VI substance and possession of drug paraphernalia in connection with the case, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department arrest report.

Gann, who is originally from Lebanon, Tenn., was arrested soon after police went to his house to investigate claims that drugs were being sold out of the residence.

When officers made entry into the home, they reportedly found two bags of marijuana, a grinder and rolling papers. Law enforcement officials also noted that they could smell a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the house while standing at the front door before the search.

After completing the search, Gann was taken into custody and transported to the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center to be booked on the charges.

He is scheduled to appear Thursday, April 24, in Rutherford County General Sessions Court for a preliminary hearing on all the charges.

Burglars target Center Pointe Drive house

On Sunday, an unknown number of suspects allegedly stole more than $1,300 worth of electronics and other items from a residence located in the 1500 block of Center Pointe Drive near Old Lascassas Highway.

The three women who live there told officers that the burglary occurred some time between 2:30 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. while they were not at home, according to a Murfreesboro Police Department incident report.

Among the items listed as stolen include a Dell laptop valued at $600, a 32-inch Vizio television worth $300, an estimated $250 in cash, as well as an Olympus digital camera.

The officers who responded to the scene attempted to locate witnesses and any possible suspects but were unable to do so during the initial investigation. Detectives responded a short time later to collect evidence at the scene and take over the case.

As of Wednesday, no one had been arrested or charged in connection with the burglary, and the matter remains under investigation.
