Cody W. French, 22, and Cory L. Beauchamp, 24, both of Perryville, were arrested on charges of growing marijuana, are both incarcerated at the Perry County Jail on a $25,000 cash-only bond.
French faces three counts of manufacturing a controlled substance with intent to distribute, and is considered a prior and persistent offender. Beauchamp is charged with two counts of manufacturing a controlled substance.
"Cody and Cory are not strangers to us," Schaaf said.
The two were suspects in another investigation, which led to the discovery of the marijuana plants, Schaaf said.
