A McHenry man and woman remained at the McHenry County Jail on Friday afternoon after police allegedly discovered large amounts of cocaine, marijuana and cash inside their home.

Ivan Olan and Cynthia Morgan are accused of possessing more than a pound of cocaine and a pound of marijuana, according to separate criminal complaints filed by the Lake County Metro Enforcement Group.

The pair was arrested at 4:56 a.m. Thursday after police searched their home in the 700 block of Columbus Street, according to a motion that prosecutors filed Friday.

The search yielded a large amount of cocaine, marijuana leaves, THC cartridges and $24,899 cash, records show.

Olan, 56, and Morgan, 50, each is charged with possession of marijuana and possession of cocaine.

The most serious charge against Morgan, possession of cocaine, typically is punishable by as many as 30 years in prison. Her bond is set at $100,000, meaning she would need to post $10,000 to be released from the McHenry County Jail.

Morgan is due back in court Tuesday.

Olan is additionally charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana and possession with intent to deliver cocaine. He also would face many as 30 years in prison if he were to be convicted of possession with intent to deliver cocaine.

Olan’s bond is set at $350,000, and he would need to post $35,000 bail to be released. He’s due back in court Wednesday.

Olan was free on bond in connection with similar charges out of Lake County when police searched his home, according to prosecutors’ motion.

He’s charged in Lake County court with possession with intent to deliver cocaine and possession with intent to deliver marijuana, court records show.

If Olan and Morgan attempt to bond out of McHenry County Jail before his or her next court date, he or she could be asked to prove that their bail money wasn’t earned through drug sales.

The sheriff’s office had not posted a booking photo of Morgan to its website as of Friday evening, and representatives from the jail could not be reached to provide one.
