Evanston police recovered about 2,300 grams of cannabis and 40 grams of crack cocaine while executing a search warrant Saturday that stemmed from illegal drug sales.

At approximately 8:15 a.m. on Saturday, police executed the warrant in the 2600 block of Central Avenue, according to a news release. In addition to the drugs, they also found a scale, a large quantity of plastic bags and approximately $4,000 in cash, the release said.

Two men — a 23-year-old and a 24-year-old — were arrested and charged with unlawful delivery of cannabis and unlawful possession of cannabis, as well as unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled substance, respectively. All of the charges are felonies, the release said.

A 21-year-old woman was also taken into custody, but was later released without charges.

The men were taken to county jail Sunday and will have a bond hearing on Monday, Evanston Police Department spokesman Perry Polinski told The Daily.
