Teen admits to having marijuana tucked in underwear during traffic stop

19-year-old Andre Gentry was charged with speeding, unlawful drug paraphernalia, and simple possession of marijuana when he was pulled over and found to be in possession of marijuana after telling police there was none inside of his vehicle.

On September 6th, Clarksville Police Officer Elijah Horton was stationary in the area of Fort Campbell Boulevard and Collier Road when he observed a tan Chevrolet Cruise traveling northbound on Ft Campbell Blvd at a speed which appeared to be above the posted limit. Officer Horton’s radar confirmed that the vehicle was traveling at 64 miles per hour (mph) in a 45 mph zone. The officer initiated a traffic stop at the Walgreens at 2975 Ft Campbell Blvd and identified the driver as Andre Gentry. Officer Horton reported that he smelled an odor of raw marijuana while speaking to Andre. When the officer told Andre that he smelled marijuana coming from the car, Andre stated that he did not have marijuana and gave the officer permission to search his vehicle.

Officer Horton found marijuana scattered throughout the floorboard, plastic baggies, cigarillos, and a digital scale. The officer began to place him into custody when he reported smelling a strong odor of marijuana coming from Andre. It was explained to him that if he had any on his person when they entered the Montgomery County Jail that he would be charged with a felony for bringing contraband into the penal institution. Andre then admitted to having marijuana tucked in his underwear which yielded approximately 3.0 grams.

Andre Gentry was arrested and charged with speeding, simple possession of marijuana, and unlawful drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $7,500.
