RANCHO CUCAMONGA >> A 63-year-old Rancho Cucamonga probationer allegedly found with methamphetamine, cocaine and about 5 pounds of marijuana in his home pleaded not guilty in court Thursday.

Robert Tennent appeared via video in West Valley Superior Court in Rancho Cucamonga to answer to drug charges and for a probation revocation hearing, according to jail records.

Tennent was arrested Monday after deputies and San Bernardino County probation officers conducted a compliance check at his home in the 9100 block of Jadeite Avenue, according to a sheriff’s statement.

During the initial search of Tennent’s home, probation officers reportedly found a small amount of methamphetamine inside his bedroom, officials said. Officers then asked Rancho Cucamonga deputies to assist with a more thorough search of the home.

Authorities recovered 11 ounces of methamphetamine, 16 grams of cocaine individually packaged for sale, more than 5 pounds of marijuana, a digital scale, several rounds of ammunition and baggies typically used to package narcotics, according to the press release.

Tennent was arrested and booked into West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine for sale, possession of cocaine for sale and possession of marijuana for sale. He is being held without bail.

His next appearance in court is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Thursday.
