Baldwin City police arrest two Baker students for growing marijuana
Baldwin City police arrested two Baker University students Tuesday afternoon after a marijuana growing operation was found in their home in the 400 block of Eisenhower.
Interim Police Chief Greg Neis said officers obtained information about the operation and a search warrant.
“Twenty-eight growing marijuana plants of various heights were seized, along with grow lights and other paraphernalia,” said Neis.
Among the charges the pair faces are possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of a school, no drug stamp and possession of drug paraphernalia. The arrest was made east of Baldwin Junior High School.
The search warrant was executed at 1 p.m. and the 24- and 20-year-old males were taken to Douglas County Jail. Neis took the reports to the Douglas County Attorney’s office Wednesday.
