A Sweetwater area man was arrested Monday afternoon after U.S. probation officers found alleged drugs in his home during a visit.

Monroe County Sheriff’s Narcotics Agent James Wall said he was told the two probation officers were visiting Douglas Anthony Robinson when they saw both a wanted woman and what appeared to be drugs in a plastic zip lock bag.

Wall said the woman was taken into custody and the plastic Ziploc bag was spotted with four smaller bags inside of it. Wall said the substance inside the bags field tested positive for meth and contained 32 grams of the alleged drug.

There was also a small plastic bag of suspected marijuana inside the Ziploc bag and a set of digital scales, Wall said.

Wall said Deputy Bobby Queen placed Robinson under arrest and Robinson asked if he could remove some things from his pocket before he was taken to jail. He was told he could and Wall said he took another small plastic bag from his pocket that contained .5 grams of a substance that field tested as meth.

Wall said Robinson then took officers to a closet where three hypodermic needles were found on a shelf, two more were found in a cloth bag along with a red metal smoking pipe with marijuana residue in it and an open pack of rolling papers.

Robinson, 40, Underwood Road, was charged with possession of meth for resale, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
