GRANT COUNTY (WKOW) -- Two men arrested for growing marijuana made their first court appearances Friday.

Travis Sedlak, 32, and Matthew Boyd, 32, each appeared in Grant County Court. Sedlak was given a $5,000 cash bond. Boyd was given a $2,500 cash bond.

Sedlak is charged with manufacturing marijuana, possessing the drug with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a drug house. A charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm was not filed against Sedlak because previous charges in the state of Nebraska were dismissed.

Boyd is charged with being party to manufacturing marijuana.

The Richland Iowa Grant Drug Task Force searched safes taken from Sedlak's home in Platteville. They found baggies of marijuana, hallucinogenic mushrooms and $14,000 in cash.
