September 16, 2009

Douglas County prosecutors filed charges against two Baker University students accused of having a marijuana-growing operation in their Baldwin City home.

Possession of controlled substances and drug paraphernalia charges were filed against Rai Shed Abdu Yahia, 24, and Alexander Abbas Fouad Farran, 20.

Baldwin City police said they found 28 marijuana plants and grow lights in their home in the 400 block of Eisenhower. The home is within 1,000 feet of Baldwin Junior High School.

The men were released from jail on $2,500 bond and are scheduled later this month to return to Douglas County District Court for hearings in front of Judge Sally Pokorny, court records said.
