UPDATE: The Chattanooga Police say they found six explosive devices, $8,000 in cash, and a pound of marijuana inside Joshua Panther’s apartment at Forest Cove.

Narcotics officers served a search warrant at the residence on October 29th, after 31-year-old Joshua Panther was stopped for speeding in Nebraska.
 

Troopers say they found 45 pounds of marijuana in Panther's Nissan Altima and seventeen THC oil cartridges.

Nebraska authorities contacted Chattanooga authorities, who say they found almost six hundred grams of marijuana and the explosives inside.
 

The explosives were removed by the bomb unit.

Residents say they were not evacuated.

A spokesperson for the complex referred us to a corporate spokesperson, who has not yet returned our calls about Panther's history with the complex.
 

But his neighbors say they have had no complaints, calling him an ideal neighbor.

Panther is out on bond and expected to appear before a Hamilton County judge on Monday.
 

According to court records, this is the first time Panther has been charged with a crime in Hamilton County.
