2 Cary men arrested on drug charges

CARY – A two-month-long investigation led to the arrests of two Cary men – including one who was charged with having about 30 ounces of marijuana, police said.

Andrew Ramsey, 18, of the 800 block of Wildrose Drive, and James J. O’Hara, 19, from the 0-100 block of Georgetown Drive, were arrested for related cases after the investigation, McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Sandra Rogers said.

The sheriff’s office arrested each man after a search warrant was served on a residence, Rogers said.

O’Hara was charged with producing less than five marijuana plants, possession of about 4 ounces (120 grams) of marijuana and intent to deliver marijuana, according to McHenry County court documents.

Ramsey was charged with delivering marijuana, possession of about 30 ounces (870 grams) of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, court documents show.

O’Hara was arrested about 5:52 p.m. Wednesday and Ramsey was arrested about 9 p.m. the same day in McHenry, according to court documents. It was not immediately clear where O’Hara was arrested.

Both men could face up to seven years in prison and are being held in the McHenry County Jail. Their next court date is Monday.

Rogers answered some initial questions on the investigation and said more information would be released later. More information was not released as of Thursday night.
