FOREST CITY, Iowa – Two Minnesota men are pleading not guilty to having marijuana at a North Iowa apartment.

Isaiah Eugene Craig, 21 of Apple Valley, MN, and Jonah Pedar Remker, 23 of Owatonna, were arrested on March 19 after Forest City police say they searched an apartment in the 100 block of Bob Johnson Drive and found 42 ½ grams of marijuana in a closet. Officers say they also discovered $1,865 in cash, a scale, multiple baggies, and pre-rolled marijuana joints.  Craig and Remker were reportedly living at the apartment at the time.
