WOODWAY (March 13, 2014) One man was charged after McLennan County deputies, assisted by Woodway police, raided a house Wednesday afternoon in the Waco suburb and seized what they're calling a record amount of synthetic marijuana.

Amubarak Ali, 59, was in the process of posting a $20,000 bond Thursday morning after he was arrested and charged with two counts of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, a McLennan County Jail records clerk said.

Ali was arrested Wednesday at the home in the 200 block of Rockford Drive after deputies searched his home and a storage unit and found what they say was more than $100,000 worth of K-2, Chief Deputy Matt Cawthon said.

The search warrant was issued at the end of a lengthy investigation, Cawthon said.

Woodway police Assistant Chief Robert Smith said Woodway officers and a K-9 assisted in the search of the house on Rockford.
