LAYTON -- Two brothers have been arrested for possessing nearly 9 pounds of marijuana.

Joseph Andrew Clements, 27, and Jonathan Isaac Clements, 31, were booked in the Davis County Jail early Thursday morning following a joint investigation by Davis Metro Narcotics Strike Force and Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force, said Layton Police Sgt. Mark Chatlin.

Each is being held under $10,000 bail.

Officers served a search warrant at a home in the area of Flint Street and Weaver Lane between 11:30 p.m. and 11:45 p.m. on Wednesday. There were no children in the home, but a third man, Tanner Black, 28, was also in the house.

He was arrested and booked in the jail on charges of possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm by a restricted person.

Chatlin said officers found a rifle that Black said was his.

Black posted bail and was released from jail.

Chatlin said the investigation began several weeks ago. There was no evidence in the home that the marijuana was grown at the residence.

The nine pounds of marijuana has a street value of $27,000 to $30,000.

"Where they got the stuff is still something that is under investigation," Chatlin said.

The Davis County Attorney's Office is reviewing the case before filing formal charges in 2nd District Court.
