Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter said a Morley, Missouri man has been arrested on drug related charges.

Nevin L. Tanner, 21, of Morley is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia with the intent to sell or deliver, possession of marijuana and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.

According to Sheriff Walter, a deputy was in Morley on Sunday, August 28 investigating a call related to an aggressive dog. The deputy made contact with Tanner, who was identified as the owner of the dog.

During the contact the deputy detected the odor of what appeared to be burning marijuana coming from inside Tanner’s residence. Tanner gave consent for the deputy to search his residence.

During the search, a substance believed to be marijuana and items commonly used to package marijuana for resell were located. Approximately 100 different smoking devices along with cash money and scales were also located inside the residence.

Walter said Tanner told the deputy that marijuana and paraphernalia was his life.  

Tanner remains in the Scott County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
