Police charged two Elk Grove Village men with possession of a controlled substance after officers executed a search warrant Thursday at the Warwick Lane home where they live.

Cook County Judge Jill Cerone Marisie set bond at $5,000 each for 21-year-old Arthur Halper and 31-year-old Miguel Hughes during a hearing Friday afternoon in Rolling Meadows.

Hughes also faces an additional misdemeanor theft charge. Halper has been charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, also a misdemeanor.

Neighbors said dozens of police were involved in the raid on the home, in which some windows were broken out. The windows were boarded up Friday, with a notice on the door saying the home wasn't currently fit for occupancy. Police declined to comment on the arrests at the bond hearing and didn't return calls to the station Friday seeking further information.

Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Moe Ahmad said police recovered 3 grams of a substance thought to be cocaine and two Chicago street signs from Hughes. From Halper they recovered 0.5 grams of ecstasy and drug paraphernalia used to ingest cannabis, Ahmad said.

Prosecutors say Hughes served two days in Cook County Jail in 2008 for unlawful use of a weapon. In 2005, he served 10 days in jail for possession of cannabis. Halper received one year conditional discharge for a 2009 battery causing bodily harm. That same year, he served five days in jail for retail theft, prosecutors said.

The defendants next appear in court on Sept. 26.
