Cairo- A judge has granted bond to two men arrested in one of Grady County's biggest pot busts in years.

     Ken Gilliard and Fred Rackley were arrested late Tuesday afternoon. Rackley's bond is set at 50 thousand dollars for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. He was given the same bond for manufacturing marijuana. Gilliard's bond is 50 thousand dollars for possession with intent, and 75 thousand dollars for manufacturing.

     Grady Sheriff Harry Young says he'd have liked to see the judge deny the men bond. "He has to set it, and we have to abide by it. But any time we get someone on a major drug bust like this I prefer to see them stay in jail. I think they're better off, the community is better off," he says.

     Authorities say they found more than 90 marijuana plants the men were growing. They expect to find more. If convicted, Rackley and Gilliard could spend more than seven years in prison.
